Vista BSOD on Apache startup

Postby dexter_x » 09. June 2008 23:27

I installed XAMPP on a fresh Windows Vista Business Ed. Worked fine until i rebooted after installing some updates...

Trying to start apache from the XAMPP control panel was causing a blue screen of death (related to win32k.sys driver)

A workaround i got from the german forum thru google.com/translate :) was to start apache using the batch script

XamppInstallDir\apache_start.bat

or

XamppInstallDir\apache\bin\apache.exe

where XamppInstallDir on mine was default C:\xampp

Hope this helps someone else
