A few tips worth noting for Vista Command prompt users especially elevating the command console with administrator privileges:
Right-click on any folder on your Windows Vista machine while holding down the shift key.
You'll see an extra context-sensitive menu item there: Open Command Prompt here.
Just click on this menu and a command window will open with the current working directory set to the folder's actual location.
In the past there was a Windows XP powertoy that did this; now it's built into the operating system (albeit hidden away to protect the unwary from themselves).
What's really cool about this is that if the target folder is a network location, Windows Vista silently maps a network drive to that location before opening the folder (so that your command prompt has a valid path containing a drive letter) and then deletes the network drive once the command prompt is closed.
User Account Control is an important part of the security protection that Windows Vista offers.
For any user with administrative credentials, you can always execute a process with full admin rights by right-clicking on the executable or shortcut and choosing "Run as Administrator".
I regularly want to open an admin-level command prompt, and it's a distraction to have to move my hands off the keyboard to go through the elevation contortions.
So I was delighted to find a little keyboard shortcut for launching an elevated process.
Simply press Ctrl+Shift+Enter from the search bar on the start menu with a selected application, and that triggers elevation.
For example, to launch an elevated command prompt, simply press the Win key; type cmd; press Ctrl+Shift+Enter; and then hit Alt+C to confirm the elevation prompt.
Six keystrokes to an elevated command prompt!
Once I've got an elevated command prompt, I always like to execute color 4f as my first input so that this console window is visually differentiated from other non-elevated windows.

Make sure IIS (Windows Internet Information Server) is disabled using the Windows Control Panel.
After rebooting your PC and before starting any XAMPP components run xampp-portcheck.exe to make sure all ports are free that XAMPP requires exclusively.
