I just installed the new xampp-win32-1.7.2-beta2.exe (the installer version).
It's not really an installer. It's a selfextracting RAR archive (SFX) which just start the "setup_xampp.bat" after extraction itself.
, but I'd prefer to install using zip files.
You can extract this archive with every software which can handle RAR archives, like unrar, winzip, 7zip.
or lead me through the process of uninstalling all the individual components from the registry, etc.
- stop the servers
- uncheck any "Svc" in CP, if any is checked (= removing the services, can also be done with the batchfiles)
- close the Control Panel
- delete the XAMPP folder
