It say

"Your port 80 is actually used by:
service : Microsoft-IIS/5.1

press any key to exist

And when i try to install service
It says
" Your port 80 is actually used by:
service : Microsoft-IIS/5.1
cannot install Apache service,please stop this application and try again "

I dont know what to try it.

Sounds like you're running two web server applications:
  1. Apache
  2. Microsoft Internet Information Services (Microsoft IIS)

Wamp sounds like a "auto" installer for your web server. Meaning a package that installs an SQL server, a text parser, and then a web server.

The issue is coming from the fact that you already have a web server running when Wamp is trying to install a second web server. Shut down Microsoft Internet Information Services, and Apache should start up fine.

If you really want to run the two at the same time, then it gets a little tricky, you will need to set them to run on two separate ports. Port 80 is the default port for all web servers. It is the port that all web browsers assume to use when accessing a web site. So using a separate web server on a different port would not be a smart idea unless you are running a hidden website, which would better be accommodated by using some sort of user authentication procedure. Or if you're using Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer (HTTPS) which is port 443 by default.

Ive found that changing your wampserver port is sometimes easier.

To do that:

Browse to your httpd.conf under the Apache menu and find the line "Listen 80"

Just change it to something like "Listen 8088" and restart Wampserver.

If everything is fine, your little Wamp Icon on the systray should be white and everything should be good to go.
