Solution for WAMP Server Aestan Tray Menu Error

Posted by on February 21, 2014 in Solution and Fixes | 0 comments

WAMP server is a very powerful web development environment for windows i.e. we can develop and test PHP based web applications on it.

Windows
32 bits or
64 bits?

You can download and install WAMP Server from its official website. You need to first verify the Windows you are using i.e. whether it is 32 bits or 64 bits, and then install the corresponding WAMP server package which is different for 32 bit OS and 64 bit OS.

I downloaded and installed WAMP Server on my 32 bits Windows XP successfully, but when I tried to put the server online, I got an error saying “Aestan Tray Menu has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience” which should look similar to below screenshot:

And after that I was  stuck. I uninstalled (removed Program from Control Panel) and re-installed WAMP server 3 times with no luck, was getting the same error. Also, while installing, sometimes I was getting the MSVCR100.dll file missing error. The error showld look like the below screenshot:

Solution for WAMP Server Aestan Tray Menu Error

Step 1

Uninstall WAMP server completely (from the Control Panel).

Step 2

Check if the .NET framework is installed on your system. If not, => Download it from here and install it.

Step 3

32 bits OS : Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
64 bit OS : Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)

Step 4

32 bits OS : Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
64 bit OS : Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)

Step 5

Install WAMP Server again.

In some cases, the programs like Skype or TeamViewer also cause an issue as they are found to use port 80 which is used by WAMP server. So you can close these programs before installing WAMP server in case the above solution does not work. Also, you may try disabling firewall settings on your AntiVirus options panel, as it may block the WAMP server programs.
