I already had wamp server installed and was interested in trying xampp.
I am not a programmer...just learning Joomla. That is why I wanted to try xampp because of the beginners Joomla PDF.
I downloaded xampp. Got some unexpected screens in a black window...some kind of code.
Looked like the program installed correctly, but looks pretty difficult...not like wamp. I went to http://localhost/ and it opened up the wamp server.
I decided I liked what I had. Tried to uninstall xampp based on the instructions on the website: I tried to delete the directory directly from the C drive but got an error message: "Can't delete Xampp - you need permission to perform this action." I can't uninstall through the normal Uninstall Programs from the control panel. I tried deleting all the files that showed up on my desktop, that didn't work either. The directory is still there, and the xampp icon is still in my system tray at the bottom of my screen.
The installation was nothing like the diagrams shown in the Joomla Quickstart guide.
Can you help me uninstall xampp?
