Indeed i still haave one last question:

The Howto said:

IMPORTANT: MySQL table upgrade to 5.1.30 in 13 steps!

cd <xampp>\mysql\bin
mysql_upgrade
mysql -u root -h localhost
mysql> use mysql;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `event`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `help_category`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `help_keyword`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `help_topic`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `proc`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `servers`;
mysql> REPAIR TABLE `time_zone_name`;
mysql> quit;
mysql_upgrade

but :

C:\xampp\mysql\bin>mysql_upgrade.exe -u root -p
Enter password: ***********
Looking for 'mysql.exe' as: C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql.exe
Looking for 'mysqlcheck.exe' as: C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqlcheck.exe
This installation of MySQL is already upgraded to 5.1.30, use --force if you sti
ll need to run mysql_upgrade

Is this really nesserary to run it again? I haven't use the --force option to do it as i found that it is already working. Will it makes any difference?

No.
It is telling you that it is already upgraded so no need to do anything now but enjoy your upgraded XAMPP.

If for some strange reason you feel that you need to run the upgrade again then it gives you the option to force the upgrade - in your case, no need exists. enjoy! :)
