    Hey there guys,

    I had extracted all of the contents of the ZIP to the folder and tried to run
    in many different locations such as the c:\ and the c:\Program Files\ but
    still I recieved the same error of "The Parameter is incorrect". I am also
    running this on Windows XP

    Please could you tell me how to solve this problem ?

    Thank you

    Neil

    Does this occur when you try to create a shortcut to zwamp.exe? If this is the
    case, try using quotes like "C:\Program Files\ZWAMP\zwamp.exe".

    BTW, you can't use version later than 2.0.4 on an XP machine. Use version
    1.1.2.

    Thanks for the reply, I was just wondering whether Z-Wamp will be able to
    support XP in the future as I want to use Z-Wamp as my development server on
    my XP machine.

    Also, when I ran Z-Wamp on my Windows 7 computer, I could not see a z: drive
    created; but everything else worked :D

    Download version 1.1.2 or get rid of that XP dinosaur. The Z-WAMP production
    cycle has no intention of carrying extra luggage that dates back to the 90's.

    Take a second look. You might have a Y: drive instead of a Z:

    I am also facing same issue. I use Windows Vista. I just downloaded ZWAMP and
    extracted into C:\Program Files\ZWAMP. I also installed VC++ 2010 service pack
    1. i double clicked and setup was successful. I can see the ZWAMP icon on my
    system tray but but browsing to http://localhost doesn't
    work. Also no Z: or any other virtual drive was created.

    How can you help me?
