when you say 'activate', i guess it does mean 'run' or 'start; for 'did not not start',does it mean not in active window?

please check Task Manager to see if the process is running?

BTW, why the tag is PHP?

WAMP runs under your User permissions and can not run until you have logged in.

@bbao, WAMP provides PHP as well as Apache and MySQL.  @rgb192 is using it to run and test his PHP code.

Left click on the Wamp icon -> Apache->Service->Install service
Same for MySQL.

Then go to services (Start->Run->services.msc), look for wampapache and wampmysqld and set the startup to "Automatic" (it will be on "Manual").

After this, even if the control panel of wamp does not start, apache and mysql (effectively the ones you need) will be available as soon as Windows starts.

HTH,
Dan

You really should try to keep you dev environments separate.

VirtualBox is both free and invaluable. I keep several VMs with Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu and Gentoo, along with 2 XP VMs for various tasks and testing.

The rule is to have a single web + database server inside a VM. This way you'll get no conflicts.
Plus snapshots make testing and recovery a snap :)
