For the past week I have been trying to get wamp server fully running on Windows 8 the IPv4/v6 (commonly complained about)  issue I solved no problem (thanks google) but I just can't get the mySQL service to start and so the wamp tray icon remains orange.

I have tried both wamp server 2.2 (with multiple install attempts) and the 2.3 beta.

With each install attempt with both versions all the services started initially (on first launch) no prob but then after either "restarting all services" or shutting down wamp and re-launching results in mySQL refusing to start.

Restarting my machine was also of no help.

Googling around has not provided me any insight as to the cause of the problem or a point to start looking to solve the prob.



Any assistance would be fantastic.

@ gnfb1234

I'm not running skype but I believe that that is a common issue with skype and apache both trying to use port 80.

@ itxtme

Below is the log (I only included the 1st error as it just repeats for each time I tried to start mySQL) I looked up the 87 error number and it is 'ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER' but what parameter I have no idea.

The log:

Is this a large disk using GPT?

If so maybe check out this bug:

http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=28913

Seems that setting

innodb_flush_method=normal

in the mysql config might be helpful.

@ubergeeknz

You are a Genius

Thanks

Seems to fix the prob (I can now access phpMyAdmin at least)

Now I just need to uninstall the 2.3beta and reinstall the stable 2.2 (not willing to develop on the beta) and make sure it works but still again.......... THANKS

Yup ubergeeknz's fix works



Just as an aside the device I am running it on (Asus TF810C) does not have a large disk (64GB solid state) but does use UEFI instead of Bios.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GUID_Partition_Table#Windows:_32-bit_versions) 32bit windows doesn't support booting from GPT partitions/drives though it only mentions compatability up to windows 7 (mine is 32bit win8). 

Checking with "DISKPART> LIST DISK" It would seem that my drive is GPT so 32bit support must have been added with windows 8.


Again thanks for the assist in this.
