How to setup yiic on WAMP (XP/Vista)
This page assumes that you have installed [Wampserver](http://www.wampserver.com/en/ "Download wampserver") on your MS Windows computer.
Start with downloading [Yii](http://www.yiiframework.com/download/ "Download Yii") and deploy the framework in your webroot/vhost (`C:\wamp\www\`).
Now you have to add the following PATH
s in Windows: "`C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.2.8`" and "`C:\wamp\www\framework`". The former path should lead where your <i>php.exe</i> resides, and the latter where your <i>yiic.bat</i> resides.
To do so, go to: `start -> My computer(right click!) -> Advanced Tab -> Environment Variables -> Click Path in System variables -> Edit`.
After entering the paths, type `cmd` in your startmenus searchfield, and go to the webroot
`yiic webapp mywebsite`
Will generate a Yii skeleton for your web application inside the directory "mywebsite" in your WAMP webroot folder.
One reason that you should stand in your WAMP webroot when giving the yiic commands is that you don't have to specify where you want the web application generated.
