I don't see any advise
in that reply.
Translation issue with the word free? - more than one usage of a port means that it is not free for use by Apache, which requires exclusive use of a free port 80.
BTW the error does not say (only one usage...) as would the normal error message returned if a port is in use by another TCP/IP application.http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/platform/windows.html
The above docs wrote:Because Apache cannot share the same port with another TCP/IP application, you may need to stop, uninstall or reconfigure certain other services before running Apache. These conflicting services include other WWW servers and some firewall implementations.
Here is a list of Windows System Error Codes (exit codes)
that really don't tell you much more than that which is contained in your actual error message from the bat file.10013 An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.
This error you have may be related to a firewall or an anti-virus scanner controlling the ports that XAMPP requires perhaps - temporarily disable your firewall and try again and if it starts then configure your firewall to allow port 80 at least.
A list of ports can be found here, ignore the reference to XP SP2 as these FAQs need updating, but still may apply.http://apachefriends.org/faq-xampp-windows.html#xpsp2
Also make sure if using Vista that UAC is turned off.http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/WindowsVistaPlatform
