Please read WAMPServer 3 All you need to know

Specifically the first section in RED

Then you will have to uninstall WAMPServer and only install it again when you have all the MSVC Runtimes installed.

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.3 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache 2.4.29/2.2.31> <PHP 7.2/7.1/7.0/5.6/5.5/5.4> <MySQL 5.7.19/5.6.39/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.2.14> <phpMyAdmin4.8.1> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo

> how do I fix this?
When you install a program, you never read the warning messages displayed before the installation actually starts?
You click Next or Install without worrying about what these warnings say!
And yet, what is displayed in the Wampserver installation message?

--- Installation of Wampserver ---
BEFORE proceeding with the installation of Wampserver, you must ensure that certain elements are installed on your system, otherwise Wampserver will absolutely not run, and in addition, the installation will be faulty and you need to remove Wampserver BEFORE installing the elements that were missing.
Make sure you are "up to date" in the redistributable packages VC9, VC10, VC11, VC13 and VC14

Then there are all the download links of the VC ++ packages as well as the explanations to install them.

I wonder why I bother to spend time writing these warnings and explanations.
