Hallo, I tried to install php 7.3 onto my windows 8 and wamp 3.1.6, it installed however an icon in tray remains orange...

so I launched check_vcredist.exe and learned I miss some packets so I installed missing software, now check_vcredist.exe shows its all up to date however tray icon is still orange

( if I switch to to php 7.0 it goes green but 7.2 and 7.3 do not seem to work )

I think my mistake was to install php7.3 before upgrading vcredist but I don't know how to fix that

+ wipping out php folder and installing it again does not help
+ repairing wamp with new install over the sam folder either

how can I come over this at the point I am now?

- Uninstall Wampserver
- Check that the installation folder no longer exists, otherwise delete it completely.
- In the service manager, check that there are no more services whose names begin with wamp....
If services remain present, note their names and leave the service manager. Open a command window, as an administrator (the word Administrator must be in the title bar of the command window) and in this window, type: sc delete servicename

- Install Wampserver 3.1.4
- Do not launch Wampserver now
- Apply Update 3.1.6 to your version of Wampserver
Wampserver update 3.1.6

Now you can launch Wampserver through its shortcut.
