I used XAMMP many times on my PC under Win98...
but it doesn't work anymore :(
I have browsed all this forum I haven't been able to find a solution to this error message:

(OS 10038)Socket operation on non-socket: make
_sock: for address, apr_socket_opt_set: (SO_KEEPALIVE)
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Changing ports did not work.
Please help me if you have an idea.
I had Kazaa previously installed and a configured hosts file. I just don't know what might have changed on my PC, there must be something as XAMPP used to run perfectly.

Thanks in advance!
