WAMP Server On Windows 7 64bit

Getting WAMP to run properly on Windows 7 isn’t very difficult as long as the permissions are properly set. Also, keep in mind that you may need to modify your windows firewall settings, and bit defender if you have it running.

WAMP needs full administrator privileges which as you may be aware needs to be set in UAC. The easiest way to change this is to go into the C:wamp folder and right click wampmanager.exe and go to Properties and then Compatibility.

Check the “Run as Administrator” checkbox and then press Apply and Okay. You may unfortunately have to confirm each time your machine starts that it should have these privileges.
