Is this correct to have the C:C:? This was all automated setup stuff so I imagine it is, but wanted to make sure.
I find this is the result of running the setup_xampp.bat, often more than once, which adds an extra C: to the paths.
You will have to go through all your conf and ini files, find and delete one of the C: from the path statements, where ever you find them. A bit of a pain but needs to be done. Your paths should be C:\xampp\... etc.
You will find these double C: entries in files like
but not limited to the above. Off hand I can't recall all the files the bat file changes.
Just to add if you installed XAMPP to a root directory in the C: drive, C:\xampp
, then there is no need to run the setup_xampp.bat. If you do, then you may have this double C: issue raise it's ugly head.
