This may mean that Mercury is not installed, perhaps.The button on the xampp control panel is greyed out
See below a method I posted some time back that may give you some ideas to make it easier to use the new XAMPP version - but be aware that 1.7.2 uses php 5.3 which may not be compatible with some older php script versions, in which case only upgrade to 1.7.1 which still uses php 5.2 until the script's authors have caught up.Etdashou wrote:So do I need to upgadre like 10 times before I go to 1.7.2 or I can upgrade more easily to the last version?
You will need to uninstall your older XAMPP version, but no big deal if you follow one or two simple instructions on the XAMPP Home Page but watch out for the author's translation errors.
Make a backup copy of all your own files you wish to keep but put them in to another location - not in the xampp folder, as part of the un-installation procedure is to delete in full the old xampp version folder.
(TIP - I usually just drag the xampp folder holding down the Ctrl key, which simply makes a Copy of xampp directory, then I install the new version, and when I have copied over my own files, sorted out any configuration file edits and the new version is working without error, I can then delete this Copy of xampp folder).
Good luck with your upgrade and please do read the XAMPP for Windows Home page and the FAQ linked from that home page - well worth the time taken, as it has some very useful tips and information.
