Microsoft HTTPAPI/2.0 use Port 80 – Cannot Start WAMP Apache

I installed wamp today, and noticed that the apache service cannot be started.
This pointed to the port 80 being used by Microsoft HTTPAPI/2.0.
I have MS SQL 2008 Reporting Services installed on the same machine.
How can I get the wamp service (apache) to work?

You have to put it on a different port, often 8080 instead of 80.  This is a common problem when you install Apache beside several Microsoft products, especially anything that installs IIS.
