Wampserver error httpd.exe

The program cannot start because it's missing icuuc51.dll in your computer.  I'm having this problem since I had to reformat my laptop, and I tried installing wampserver, I have run windows update, installed visualc++ 2008, 2010 & 2012 redistributable but I'm still having this issue.  I never had this before, I don't know what could be causing this.

If so, reboot, then do this:


Edit the \wamp\script\config.inc.php file and find the code that sets this variable $phpDllToCopy and replace it with this code.

$phpDllToCopy = array (
    'icudt52.dll', //[modif oto] - Ajouts pour éviter unknown error PHP 5.6.a2
    'icudt51.dll', //[modif oto] - Ajouts pour éviter unknown error PHP 5.5.6
    'icudt50.dll', //[modif oto] - Ajouts pour éviter unknown error PHP 5.5
    'icudt49.dll', //[modif oto] - Ajouts pour éviter unknown error PHP 5.3/5.4
    'libsasl.dll', //[modif oto] - Ajout pour éviter unknown error
    'fribidi.dll', //[modif oto] - Ci-contre et dessous pour PHP 5.2.x
    'fdftk.dll',   // Peuvent être supprimés pour PHP 5.3.0 ou plus

It worked, I managed to install all the Visual C++ updates, the 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 updates, i uninstalled wamp server, and reinstalled it and It started to work.  For some reason it seems that microsoft stopped the updates for Visual C++.

Visual C++ with .NET is pretty bad idea from a conceptual standpoint, so no... it makes sense. Don't train an athlete to run with crutches held together by masking tape.
