Re-Install not working

Postby Poppa » 16. December 2006 03:56

My Dell Dimesnsion desktop malfunctioned. The recovery did not retrieve my XAMPP configuration. I have repeatedly uninstalled and reinstalled and cannot recover.

At this point I have disabled everything I recognize on my windows XP task manager. After executing an XAMPP uninstall, I have an empty XAMPP folder in my C:\programs path. But when I try to delete that folder, it denies because some program is using it.

Where do I start?

Regards,

befor you Deinstall xampp please "uninstall the xampp services" (apache and mysql) because the running services block the xampp folders.

This is encouraging.

However, my XAMPP control panel is gone. Is there another way to stop the services?

Open a command prompt (cmd.exe)and type:

sc delete mysql
sc delete apache2

after this start the xampp-control panel

sc stands for service control and will delete any stray services that won't shut down by any normal means.


see also the thread:
http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopi ... t=services

find with the "forum search funktion" with searchword "services" and search only in "XAMPP for Windows"
