In my previous post “Install WordPress on Localhost/PC – WampServer” I have shared the step by step process of installing WAMP server on a windows 10 machine.

when we restart the wamp server after installation the WAMP server icon appears orange and localhost doesn’t works as it should be. Lets find out the solution

Also two more error may pop up while starting the WAMP server like VCRUNTIME140.dll error and  MSVCR110.dll error.

WAMP server VCRUNTIME140.dll error
WAMP server VCRUNTIME140.dll error
WAMP server MSVCR110.dll error
WAMP server MSVCR110.dll error
WAMP server orange icon
WAMP server orange icon

All of these errors are associated with following Microsoft Visual C++ distribution libraries:

  1. VC 2010 SP1 Package (x86)(x64)
  2. VC 2012 Update 4 (x86)(x64)
  3. VC 2013 Package Up 5 (x86)(x64)
  4. VC 2015-2019 (VC16 x86)(VC16 x64)14.25.28508

You can check if all these libraries are installed correctly or not by using this tool – Checks VC++ packages installed

You can also download all VC++ libraries in one single archive http://wampserver.aviatechno.net/files/vcpackages/all_vc_redist_x86_x64.zip

Once all libraries are installed reinstall the WAMP server and start again & now you can see the WAMP server icon in the bottom right corner starts with Red then turns into orange icon & finally turns into WAMp server green icon which means now our WAMP server is ready.

Next we will see some more localhost options to compare what are better ways to make our WordPress development process more efficient and faster, So stay connected and you can also subscribe to my channel TheWebGuru – YouTube Channel
