Apache ->Service-> Test port 80
It will show show you which software using ports 8080 mostly Skype using the port 8080 .
Go to Skype and follow these step:
Go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection and uncheck the box “use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections and Unmark it “.
restart Skype and Wamp server again
If this Solution doesn’t work then move on next Step.
If you install WAMPServer before you install the C++ Redistributable, it won’t work even after you’ve installed it because you will miss a critical step in the installation where you tell Windows Firewall to let Apache run.
