Test environment for nuBuilder

Unread postby base37 » Fri Aug 27, 2021 6:17 pm

I am keen to evaluate nubuilder for my development needs. I am running Windows 7. I have tried to install XAMPP for Windows 3 times now (v8 twice, v7 once) but I keep getting the message API-MS-Win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll missing. I have raised this issue on the XAMPP forum and tried several suggestions without success. I have also installed the C++ runtime.
1. Do you have any suggestions how to resolve this problem as the XAMPP support specialist has stopped responding?
2. Is there any environment where I can test nubuilder functionality without installing it locally, on a website say.

Did you really try WAMP or XAMPP? XAMPP is a lot easier to install as you do not install dependencies:

Yes I really did try to install XAMPP, several times. I got the following

I have been to the Apache friends forum. Altrea has stopped replying to my posts.
Still keen to know if there is any test environment for nuBuilder that does not require a successful install?

Have a look at the services that are running (type services.msc to launch it).

Look to see if W3svc is running. If so, stop it and then try to run xampp.

I ran in to this issue quite a few times when first running xampp, as the W3svc service gets started on reboot and blocked xampp from starting Apache on port 80.

In the end I ended up installing Apache via Apache Haus (a version of Apache specifically optimised for Windows) and have used that for testing nuBuilder.

Thank you for your reply.
I checked running services. W3SVC is not present.
Could I try starting XAMPP using a different port - and if so, which port?

I think you can pick any port that is not in use. E.g. 81.

I am keen to test nuBuilder forte before I commit to purchasing a website. Are you aware of any try before you buy sites for nuBuilder, similar to the Knack offering
