I get this message after a new, clean install of wampserver and I really have no idea how to resolve it. I've looked through the forum but can't find a solution...

State of services:

The service 'wampapache64' is NOT started
EXIT error code:1066
Help message for error code 1066 is:The service has returned a service-specific error code.
>>> AH00015: Unable to open logs .
>>> AH00451: no listening sockets available, shutting down .

The service 'wampmysqld64' is started
Start type : DEMAND_START
Service Session : LocalSystem

The service 'wampmariadb64' is started
Start type : DEMAND_START
Service Session : LocalSystem

WampServer (Apache, PHP and MySQL) will not function properly if any service
is not started.

all services BINARY_PATH_NAME are OK
all services START_TYPE are OK

Did you respect the prerequisites BEFORE installing Wampserver ?

- 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 - Apply items 03, 08 and 09 of TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS

- 4 - Install Wampserver 3.3.0 as an administrator.
