Icon missing from task bar

The WAMP icon dissapears from the lower right windows 11 task bar and I am unable to adjust any settings. It's also not in the hidden area. However, Wamp is still running. This occurred immediatly after installing and using PHP 8.1.10 but I'm unsure that is the cause.

Restarting WAMP show the icon again, until I click on it.

Any way to fix this?

Update: The issue resolved itself after rebooting Windows

Hi,

> Update: The issue resolved itself after rebooting Windows

Windows 11 does not automatically update VC++ redistributables, so you must :

- 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 http://wampserver.aviatechno.net 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.

- If it is not already done, apply Update 3.2.9 to your version of Wampserver
Wampserver update 3.2.9

Thank you for your response. After reading it I ran the latest VC++ tool and everything is good.

My current running configuration
Wampserver 3.2.9 (64 bit) - Apache 2.4.54 - PHP 8.1.10 - MySQL 5.7.39 (don't use Maria) PhpMyAdmin 5.2.0 Windows 11 (64 bit)

After installing Apache 2.4.54 and MySql 5.7.39 the WAMP icon dissappeared, but restarting WAMP brought it back. I was then able to change to the new versions.

How can I delete old versions of PhpMyAdmin?

Currently have PhpMyAdmin versions
4.9.7
5.1.1
5.2.0 (in use)

Tried reinstalling 5.2.0, set replace old version, confirmed I wanted to remove old versions, install failed - already installed, old versions not removed.

Will redo this when next PhpMyAdmin version is released
