Try this:

I use it, and it works great.

Thanks, I looked at that one before too.
This is a high use production site, so after we reinstall OS, I am going to install full versions
of all 3. I can't find any info on the WAMP site about limitations or security issues like
I found on Xampp, but after this last go-round, I am not interested in "lite" or tweaked versions
just so it installs easier.
The question here was more in regards to Windows Webserver edition issues, if any. I can't
seem to find any online, so I am surmising it is just a corrupt install at this point.
