Hi to all.

I downloaded a XAMPP installer version, and installed in my computer,
but when i start Apache + Mysql , and try acess the local host Firefox says it is loading and it says it is loading until firefox times out and stops the loading process, after that i downloaded the 7-zip version, and had the same problem. I use xampp in this computer one time and worked perfetc, but i uninstall, and now 3 mounths later, i had this problem..

Some one can help-me??

You may still have some traces in your registry of your old XAMPP installation that is stuck.

Try this:
Close/Exit the control panel after stopping any running components.

Open a command prompt:
Click on start>Run...
Type cmd.exe
Click OK

Type:
sc delete mysql
Hit Enter

Type:
sc delete apache2
Hit Enter

Start the control panel again and try start your components.
Then try and visit http://localhost in your browser.

Also make sure you are not using Skype or IIS as both will clash with XAMPP. Disable both if you have them installed.

Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Runnings beenden ...
Zum stoppen bitte die xampp_stop benutzen!

What does the message say when you try and start apache and mysql using the instructions at step 2 in the readme_en.txt file?

When you installed XAMPP what path did you install to and did you follow the installation instruction with reference to running setup_xampp.bat?
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#522

When you open the XAMPP Control Panel why do you click on the xampp_start.exe instead of clicking on the Start buttons in the XAMPP Control Panel?

What happens when you click on the apache and mysql start buttons in the XAMPP control Panel?

What ports are in use and by what programs when you do a port check by clicking on xampp-portcheck.exe?

Do you have any other instances of a web server on your computer?

Are you running Skype?

Do have Windows IIS active on your PC?

Test: After Apache starts, open the URL http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1 and examine all of the XAMPP examples and tools.
