Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2015-2022 x64
VC2015-2022 (VS17) is backward compatible to VC2015 (VC14), VC2017 (VC15) and VC2019 (VS16). That means, a VC14, VC15 or VS16 module can be used inside a VS17 binary. Because this compatibility the version number of the Redistributable is 14.3x.xx and after you install the Redistributable VC2015-2022, the Redistributable packages VC2015 (VC14), VC2017 (VC15) and VC2019 (VS16) are eventually deleted but you can still use VC14, VC15 and VS16.

If you have a 64-bit Windows, you must install both 32 and 64bit versions, even if you do not use Wampserver 64 bit.
This is item number 20 of TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
To check if the required VC packages are installed properly, you can use the program Checks VC++ packages installed available in section Tools of this page and then download and install the missing packages. All VC++ packages can be downloaded from the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages section of this page.

------ After Installation ------
--- PhpMyAdmin
When starting phpMyAdmin, you will be asked for a user name and password.
After installing Wampserver 3, the default username is "root" (without quotes) and there is no password, which means that you must leave the form Password box empty.
There will be a warning:
You are connected as 'root' with no password, which corresponds to the default MySQL privileged account. Your MySQL server is running with this default, is open to intrusion, and you really should fix this security hole by setting a password for user 'root'.
This is not a problem as long as access to Phpmyadmin remain locally.
However, some web applications or CMS asking that the MySQL user has a password. In which case, you will create a user with password via the PhpMyAdmin Accounts Users tab.
