Not with so little detail.

You need to provide much more info - I can't see your screen nor know what you have done or what you are doing to arrive at any sort of conclusion as my crystal ball is in for repair after overheating with all the use it gets in these forums.

What do you see when you go to:
http://localhost
http://localhost/security
http://localhost/phpmyqdmin

There is something wrong with your XAMPP installation and it would be best if you uninstalled this instance (as per the readme_en.txt file) and downloaded the EXE (7zip) version and extract the files to C:\ for example and it will put all the XAMPP files in to the C:\xampp folder.
Then run setup_xampp.bat file to set all the paths.

Backup your own files first before uninstalling XAMPP.


Next start the XAMPP Control Panel (XCP) and start Apache and MySQL but do not click on any of the Admin... buttons or tick any of the Svc boxes at this point.

Then try the localhost address as before.

Once we have XAMPP working correctly then we can go forward but is pointless until XAMPP is working as it should.

How are you trying to connect to the computer with XAMPP installed from your other computer - what address in the browser's address bar?

Open xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file in your text editor.

Look for this line:
Listen 80

Change to:
Listen *:80

Save the file and restart Apache (restart means stop then start again).

See if that helps.

Clear your browser's cache and try again, BTW there is no need to forward ports on a LAN.

Have you tried turning of your router then powering back on again?

Check this Google as you are not alone with your error message.
