I just installed the latest WAMP on windows 7 64bit. The installation was successful but now WAMP doesn't open. It says 'Aestan Tray Menu has stopped working' and when I click on 'Close Program' it shows the error 'Exception Exception in module wampmanager.exe at 000F15A0. Could not execute run action: . '

Please tell me how can I fix this.

First check whether you have installed 32 bit or 64 bit version of WAMP. Reference this

  1. Install the 64-bit Windows OS and keep the WAMP Server's 64-bit installation as it is. --OR--
  2. Install the 32-bit version of WAMP Server on the current Windows 32-bit OS.

Secondly, If you have installed correct version then follow this link the will clear much about this issue.

You need the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) (x64)

The error with exception 000F15A0 means caused by the windows runtime . So, install the Visual C++ 2008 runtime and run the wamp. The error will be gone.
