Determine Operating System Status
Before you start you have to know which Operating System is installed. You need this information to establish which
software you need.
Please note that only Microsoft® Windows will be covered in this tutorial. With that said, follow the next instructions.
On the keyboard, press and hold the Windows Start Key
The following box will open. This is the Windows Run Command.
Type dxdiag in the open box.
When the following box open, wait for the WHQL Digital Signatures check to load. If this is the first time you do this, the
program will ask your permission first to check for signatures. Click OK to confirm that you want to check.
Take Note that this is not harmful to your computer, it is a built in service within the Operating System.
Above you can see 64-Bit, that means Windows is 64-Bit and I should only install WampServer 64-Bit. You cannot have
both installed at the same time.
Now that you have checked your status, the next would be to download the software needed.
Download the following two files – It’s Free - It’s All We Need!
Depending on Your Operating System (Windows XP or Windows 7) select the Bit type - 32Bit or 64Bit. In most
cases, Windows XP will be 32Bit, but nonetheless, please make sure by following previous instructions.
