Could not execute menu item (internal error)

Although I completely re-installed Wamp i cannot open php.ini using the menu options (php - php.ini).
And php error log neither.
I checked VC++ and all needed versions are available.
I'm on a Windows 10 machine.

The error message i get is:
Aestan Tray Menu
Could not execute menu item (internal error)
[Exception] Could not execute run action:
The system could not find the selected file

(The last line was translated from German)
I encounter problems getting connected with XDEBUG, and could imagine that parameter settings for XDEBUG might not be made for the correct php.ini.

As a side note: I also have XAMPP installed, which I use for tests of special S programs. I realized that when entering "php --ini" in the IntelliJ IDEA terminal, an xampp.php.ini is listed, although I'm in a WAMP folder...


How can I solve this problem? It would be nice getting direct access to the correct php.ini file. And once that works I hope my other problem also is gone ;-)

Hi,

Xampp interferes with Wampserver.
And this may be due to a php.ini related to xampp in Windows.

> The system could not find the selected file
This means that the file php.exe or php-win.exe specified in wampmanager.ini does not exist or that the file wampmanager.ini is "infected".

Question:
Do you have anything XAMPP on the windows PATH?

Sorry for the late reply, some days of vacation distracted me ;-) !

Yes, XAMPP is installed because I need it for another project. But I stopped all XAMPP services.

What can I do to "hide" XAMPP while I want to use WAMP?`

Modify any default path (xampp or wamp) , install xampp or wamp on a different disk, change a setting in e.g. wampmanager.ini, ???


Thanks for any hint I could try!

So XAMPP must add something to the Windows PATH.

This is not good for WAMPSevrer as it does NOT amend or need or like the PATH to be amended to contain a path to the php executable, because WAMPServer can have many versions of PHP installed waiting to be activated.

There is also no real need to have the php.exe folder on the PATH for anything, but some add it to make finding the PHP CLI easier.

I suggest you consider using a little batch file like this and amend it a little to let you tell it to use either XAMPP's folders or WAMPServers folders
