EasyPHP error cannot run specified program

EasyPHP is a COMPLETE WAMP package and READY-TO-USE ENVIRONMENT for PHP DEVELOPERS including the server-side scripting language PHP, the web server Apache, the SQL server MySQL, as well as development tools such as the database manager PhpMyAdmin, the debugger Xdebug and many others. Nothing to configure. It's already done! You just need to download, intall ... and code. The administration page allows you to list the docroot, extensions,change the Apache port, the timezone, max execution time, error reporting,upload max filesize, add/remove alias, manage modules.

After installing and running the easyphp I got an error 
"The system cannot execute the specified program" 

You are trying to run some program on Windows (such as apache.exe or htpasswd.exe) and you are getting "The system cannot execute the specified program" error. This usually means that the program you are trying to run was compiled against DLLs that are not on your system.

The Apache 2.x binary windows distribution, specifically, was compiled against the Visual Studio 2008 re-distributable package, which you can download from microsoft.

Download link:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable package (x86)

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable package (x64)

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable package (choose from the list of downloads accordingly)
