Why does WAMP not configure itself to autostart?

Surprisingly, forum search for "autostart wamp" yielded no hits.

It's 2016. WAMP is meant to manage MySQL and a web server in an integrated, user-friendly fashion.

But there is not an obvious, simple way to persuade WAMP to autostart.

When will WAMP learn how to do this?

In the meantime, what is the simplest way to accomplish this in Windows 10?

Hi,

Quite simply, WAMPServer is designed as a developers tool.

You dont auto start a compiler, or a wordprocessor just in case you might use it. So why would you autostart a webserver and a database menager?

If you are using Apache and MySQL as a libe server then just completely forget about wampmanager, simply stop using it. Then you can set the `wampapache` and `wampmysqld` to autostart.

If you use wampmanager, it will attempt to reset these services to `manual` statup.
