Yesterday I got an error while installing WampServer 3 on the Windows 10 that, “The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.” I successfully installed the program on my computer, but couldn’t able to start it.
WampServer displays an icon with three different colors on the system tray to indicate the running status of the virtual server on your computer. The red icon means the server is not running, and green shows that it is running without any issue.
But, the orange icon tells about the minor problems that should be fixed to run your server successfully. So, in this tutorial, I am going to explain the procedure to solve a big problem that most people face while installing WampServer on Windows PC.
WAMP is a Windows web development environment that allows you to create web-based applications with Apache2, PHP, and MySql. PHP is a server-side scripting which stands for Hypertext Preprocessor. As like HTML, you can’t develop your PHP website with your naked windows computer. It needs a server to run, and WampServer does that.

MSVC or Microsoft Visual C++ is an integrated development environment of Microsoft for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It is required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer. WampServer 2.4, 2.5 and 3.0 are required the MSVC runtime libraries VC9, VC10, VC11. And, Runtimes VC13 and VC14 are required for PHP 7 and Apache 2.4.17.

You must install the runtime libraries to run the server successfully on your computer. If the WampServer is 32-bit then install the 32-bit version of MSVC and if it is 64-bit then install the 64-bit version.
How to know the missing library to run WampServer?
In order to check the missing library check the error message. In my case, VCRUNTIME140.dll indicates about the VC14. The last three digits explain about the runtime library. Check your error message and download the required library below.
Here I have given the links of VC9, VC10, VC11, VC13 and VC14 packages. Download and install the required package according to the error message.
- Download VC9 Packages (Visual C++ 2008 SP1): 32-bit|64-bit
- Download VC10 Packages (Visual C++ 2010 SP1): 32-bit|64-bit
- Download VC11 Packages (Visual C++ 2012 Update 4): 32-bit or 64-bit
- Download VC13 Packages (Visual C++ 2013): 32-bit or 64-bit
