DO NOT USE ON WIN 8.1 DO NOT USE ON WIN 8.1 don't know how good it "used to be" I tried it and I am sorry I did!! God am I sorry! 1st) Portability? meh...tried on a new pny 64gb USB...total cluster**** DID NOT WORK! 2nd) Installed on Win 8.1 x64 which lead to it's ultimate UNINSTALL! May have found some of the usual "leftovers" and deleted them as well PROBLEM - It puts an environment path in that CAN NOT BE REMOVED. Open Admin:CMD to unlock the system environment paths if you like. The easyphp will be RIGHT BACK waiting for you when you return!!! Not the whole program...just the path WHY DOES THAT SUCK - Well, some how it's tied in to a User Account Control that can't be found. (Sorry Xampp installer snitched on you!) UNFORTUNATELY - You can pretty much kiss having a webserver goodbye if you UNINSTALL this program. Xampp clearly tells you pre-install that the UAC is going to be a problem. WAMP Server installs but php mysql and apache are fried. IIS will start hanging up on downloads. THINGS WILL INITIALLY APPEAR NORMAL - but a little off. I was looking at an open source program that I KNOW TO BE CLEAN in WAMP and BAM!!! Out of the blue phpmyadmin blanked out. It had been working seconds earlier. PINGING - Wamp green light, ping came back clean for apache System Environment will show a path directly to where the Easyphp files USED TO BE. Delete as many times as you wish...it comes back. CONCLUSION - hidden user, a path that blocks out all other webservers (presumably once its fully set itself up., bypasses security, bypasses administrator level fixes. Does the website have a contact? NOPE. Also important to note. Never had a problem before with system restore. I do not know if that is related but would fit the overall "feel" of this bug! VERDICT - 1 star across the board (only because ZERO was not an option!!! Without coming right out and saying it...I think we know what we're dealing with here. My Windows system works perfectly other than the gliches mentioned. Sadly I will have to restore it to factory settings. Feels like burning down my own house :( Final Opinion after years of using webservers - NO COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, thank you thank you thank you SOOOOOO much easyphp. I've spent 24 hours trying to undo your...whatever you call your "program" to no avail.
