When installing Wampserver on the Windows 8.1 (64 bit) and the Windows 10 (64 bit) be sure and use the 64 bit version of Wampserver. Depending on the platform Wampserver will advise you of any missing software.
The first thin to do is make sure the localhost designation is not commented in the hosts file of the operating system. The hosts file on the windows platform is usually found at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. Care should be taken to open the file you will perform the edit with in administrator mode. Anything less than administrator mode not be able to save any required changes.
After successful install make sure services are installed for Apache and MySQL. Start all service should be invoked after these two services are installed.
