The solution is to quit Skype before installation (or re-install after quitting). Worked a treat for me so I'm posting this for others who search under the port 80 blocked error message in the hope that they get some benefit.
By the way - coooool application. I've installed LAMP/WAMP manually for production purposes many times and this is soooo much better!

Independent analyses of the software have addressed the latter to some degree.

However, I'm still pulling out my hair for the fail on Apache installation. After checking, this is what I got for my port80 blocker:
Servie Port Status
Apache (HTTP) 80 C:\WINDOWS\system32 \inetsrv\inetinfo.exe
Any clue about how to relinquish this port80 to XAMPP?
Thanks in advance!
