I upgraded my xampp installation using the installation (executable) method from 1.6.8 to 1.7 but now mySQL is no longer able to start.
I found a topic where someone had the exact same problem: Link
In that topic it was advice to comment out the "skip-bdb" line in the my.cnf file.
After I did this and start the mysql the following was returned:
Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden
Please dont close Window while MySQL is running
MySQL is trying to start
Please wait ...
MySQL is starting with mysql\bin\my.cnf (console)

The service is not started though according to the services window.
When I press CTRL-C it is displaying:

Terminate batch job (Y/N)?
Please help me out as the site I host with xampp is used frequently.
Many thanks for your help.
