I have attempted to install XAMPP on Vista and I have the following problems:
1) the XAMPP control panel will allow me to only briefly start Apache and MySql...then stops running after START and returns to Admin mode...(I have used the control panel to install both Apache and MySQL service with a checkbox...I have also activated install files for both Apache and MySQL from the XAMPP download files)
2) When I exit from the XAMPP control panel and shutdown my pc and then later attempt to tun my pc back on, I get a recurring error that pops up (approx every 5 seconds).
I have uninstalled XAMPP and attempted to reinstall with same recurrring problem. I am running windows firewall for security and I am reluctant to turn-off for obvious reasons.
I appreciate any recommendations and I will do my best to assist forum members with any future problems as I gain experience with XAMPP.
Many Thanks In Advance!
