you know, that there is a special XAMPP for Windows Board here in English?

Returning to your question:

It should not be a problem to install XAMPP, even if "your" Port is already taken. You only will get a problem when starting the Apache Webserver.

In this case you either have to modify the configuration file of the Apache (called httpd.conf) or you have to modify / uninstall / disable the other Program, using this Port.

And if you do not know what application is using the port run xampp-portcheck.exe (in the xampp folder) it will show you if anything eles is using port 80 etc.
