If I click Admin in the XAMPP panel before the service starts,
Something wrong with trying the above?Wiedmann wrote:If I click Admin in the XAMPP panel before the service starts,
Don't use this button (or the tool WinMySQLAdmin)!
- Close this tool,
- remove it from your startup folder,
- delete, if exists, any "my.ini" or "my.cnf" in your %WinDir%.
- delete the existing service ("sc delete mysql")
- recreate the service ("mysql_installservice.bat")
- restart your pc
and try again.
Reading the forum Announcement may help you to understand how to use the forum search facility correctly and being a new Apache Friends forum user it is the best place to start as answering the same questions over and over is quite a tedious task.segelwindhose wrote:Izzy - things will not become fixed if telling people to use the search engine.
Even the successful solutions in this post which is only a few posts down the forum list of topics didn't help?:segelwindhose wrote:There are more than three topics in the english and german forum about this problem
The number of comments (not fixes) is even higher, I've read and tried all !
No solution reported yet ... except GODLIKE who fixed but didn't respond how exactly.
Wiedmann's fix list I do believe which looks to me like a general cumulative check list of past known fixes - individual circumstances and PC conditions are not taken into account - flexibility is the name of the game with all things MS.segelwindhose wrote:To be honest: your fix does not work - especially at my machine: XP SP3, fresh and new
..and sc delete mysql at a command prompt not working either - deleting or uninstalling services will only be effective if a service is installed in the first place and for some registry issue can't be uninstalled in the usual manner.segelwindhose wrote:When went through the post in the forum, there is one commonality: XP with SP3, e.g.
All install and uninstall .bat does not work ! Unchecking boxes in the xampp does not work too !
Killing services does not work !
Using the installer version are you, perhaps?segelwindhose wrote:Just installing xampp out of the box and starting service does not work on XP SP3
Please do that so it may help others like you that seem unable to find a suitable solution from the many previously posted on the forums.segelwindhose wrote:Right now, I'm going to read and search the solution, will inform in case of substantial progress.
