Since my last post i still havent gotten xampp working. INCREDIBLY frustrating as i need xampp to program with...
I know port 80 is free, because i have checked using netstat -ano ; nothing is using port 80 from there.
the error: "An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. : make_sock: unable to listen for connections on address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs"
Also, i checked using TcpView - a program that shows all connections - all to no avail.
Running on vista.
