I have just installed WAMP Server and upon launching I get this message:

php.exe - system error
The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR110.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

I have already tried to reinstall the program and still get the error message so cant get started with the software.

Any help please?

Even if you install twice, you have not read and therefore not applied the prerequisites displayed in bold and red.

--- 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 , VC15 and VS16.

- 1 - Uninstall Wampserver
- 2 - Verify that all VC ++ packages are installed and with the latest versions.
To do this, use the tool:
Checks VC++ packages installed
Do not use a previously loaded tool. Make a new download to make sure you are using the correct version.
To download missing packages, do not rely on Microsoft links, they are not reliable, download packages on in section Visual C++ Redistribuable Packages
Do not forget that if you have a 64 bit Windows, you must install both 32 and 64 bit versions of each package.
You must install each package "as an administrator", so right-click the exe file and then run as Administrator.
- 3 - Install Wampserver as an administrator

Wampserver 3.2.4 32 bit - Apache 2.4.46c - PHP 8.0.2…5.6.40 - MySQL 5.7.33 - MariaDB 10.5.9
Wampserver 3.2.4 64 bit - Apache 2.4.46c - PHP 8.0.2…5.6.40 - MySQL 5.7.33/8.0.23 - MariaDB 10.5.9
PhPMyadmin 5.0.4 - MysqlDumper 1.24.5
on W10 and W7 Pro 64 bit
