xampp_cli.exe (XAMPP: control services from the shell) crash

Postby echristopherson » 01. April 2010 00:28

Sorry, I don't speak German. I wrote this in the English forum a week ago, but didn't receive a response with a solution.

I just upgraded XAMPP Lite from 1.7.0 to 1.7.3 (I completely deleted the old installation and unpacked the ZIP file), and since then, xampp_cli.exe has been crashing when I start Apache from the XAMPP Control Panel. Despite this, Apache does seem to run fine.

The actual error popup is the usual one that comes up in Windows XP when a program crashes. It says "XAMPP: control services from the shell has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I am running Windows XP build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.091208-2036 (Service Pack 3) on a PC at work. Since I don't have administrative rights or rights to install in C:\ I have XAMPP Lite installed in C:\Documents and Settings\echristopherson\My Documents\Development\XAMPPLite. I do not run any XAMPP-provided servers as Windows services. I ran setup_xampp.bat to set up the path, and told it to not store the drive letter with it.

As I said, I'm now using XAMPP Lite 1.7.3. The Control Panel (Apache Friends Edition) version is "XAMPP Control Panel Version 2.5.8 (2009-07-28)"; the xampp_cli.exe version is "xampp_cli.exe v1.6 by (c) 2009 Carsten Wiedmann (FreeBSD License)."

Apache's error.log looks pretty normal:
