I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to install Percona (mysql replacement) and use it with WampServer on a Windows XP machine. If so, does anyone know where to start?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
I never done it, however, I suggest that you download the source and try compiling it under Windows (refer to the MySQL documentation).
However, you can also try MariaDB. There are official Windows binaries with an install wizard, and it works on XP. MariaDB also includes XtraDB (Percona's InnoDB fork) and many Percona's patches.
