GeneralWindows Development: Why so difficult Pin

I have been developing in Windows since 1996. And loved it.
Last week one of my clients computer crashed.
His application was in ASP.NET, .NET 4.5. A very small application for managing his Gym.
I had to install SQL Server Express 2012. It took all day. First install .NET runtime. Then during SQL install, had to download and install Powershell. Then install IIS7.
This took up my whole day.
Then restore the Database etc. etc.
One of my developers was working on PhP and MySQL on his own. He showed me how easy it was to just copy XAMPP, start Apache and MySQL and copy the PhP application and start work. No installation, nothing.
In MS, you have to install so many things, then as you keep on installing applicaion, even for a test drive, and then uninstall, this slows down windows. SO much garbage accumulates in the registry.
Why can MS produce apps that can only be copied and run, as earlier in Wordperfect, or Wordstar, or presently as XAMPP?
Is there somebody out there who has influence on MS to ask them to do this.
Since I have now started working in PhP, I find it so SUPERFAST and easy and it has so many FREE third party tools that I converted the Gym application to PhP and MySQL in just 2 days which had taken full to weeks to develop in .NET
