You can't have 2 servers bound to one port both looking for localhost like that. You could set up a virtual host in your apache\confs\extra\httpd-hosts.conf like so:
Then edit a line in your hosts file
(On windows it's at %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts )
add the line
This should allow you to navigate to apachehost for the xampp server. If not, revert all those changes and change your apache listen directive in \xampp\apache\confs\httpd.conf to:
Listen: 8080 (Or whichever port you want.)
Then you should be able to navigate there with localhost:8080.
