  11. You are presented with which browser Wampserver will use. The default is   Internet Explorer  . It will be better to use   Chrome   since it has the largest market share. Click   Yes   to use another browser.

  14. You may get several   MSVCR120.dll not found   errors during installation. After checking I found   MSVCR120.dll   was there - the process was not able to find it.
