I have exactly the same problem. (I have had to reinstall Wampserver because the spring update of Windows 10 devastated my computer.) The exact file I am trying to install is wampserver3_x64_addon_mariadb10.3.7.exe

Hi,

> wampserver3_x64_addon_mariadb10.3.7.exe
As the file name indicates, this is not a Wampserver installation file, but a file adding a component (In this case MariaDB 10.3.7) to Wampserver already installed. This is indicated by the term "addon".

To see what the complete installation files are, read : WAMPserver 3 - All you need to know

And, if you want to see easily which files are all for Wampserver, it is much easier to consult the page: http://wampserver.aviatechno.net which is much better organized than Sourceforge.

Oh hell! Thank you for your reply. I simply clicked on the button which said "Download the latest version", and was prominent on the page.

My excuse is that because of the Windows crash (directly caused by Microsoft) I have only had a couple of hours sleep in the last 24 hours.Most of that time was spent recovering my network.

Now at last I have the network working and can download the essential programs. I have been using your fine program since you first produced it, and it is one of the most urgent for me to have on my computer again. Thanks again.

Hi,

> I simply clicked on the button which said "Download the latest version"
Sourceforge is very badly organized for that. We don't know the "latest version" of what. It is never specified whether this is the latest full installation version or the latest addon.
