Hi Shelly,

Will as you can see in your error message. That was inside your system. Because when you install the application in your system then install other application in your system. Will probably the error was not compatible in the system that you’ve been installed. So I suggest install it back the one that you uninstall in your system. Or if not and want to use the windows XP uninstall the application that you installed in windows vista. And install it again using your new windows.

If the error came up again try to find compatibility in your system using search engine. Or you can upgrade your application with the compatibility in your system.

I think you did not read the documentation that comes with the program WampServer that is why you are not aware that it will not run in Windows XP. Whenever you install software whether if it is a game, a disk utility, an antivirus, or just a plain application, always practice to read first the documentation that is included in the installation files. Usually, the System Requirements are listed in the file readme.txt. All programs have this file in them. I haven’t had any applications or programs in my computer that doesn’t have a readme file.

Your problem is just a plain program incompatibility. If you are thinking of using the program compatibility mode to be able to run WampServer on Windows XP, 100% it will not work. Windows XP is an earlier version of Windows platform. You will not find Windows Vista in the dropdown list of operating systems in the Compatibility mode because it’s newer than XP.

The best and only solution would be to revert back to the previous version of Windows that is installed in your computer, Windows Vista.
