no xampp icon in taskbar ?

Postby steve00 » 30. May 2010 10:48

Hi

Have just installed latest version (1.7.3) and have noticed that when running xampp via xampp_start.exe that there is no icon in taskbar, I get the 'black' box open and then disappears after a few seconds (or do I have to start xampp via the xampp_cli.exe instead now) ?

Can someone please advise if when running prog if there should still be an icon in windows taskbar as there used to be for earlier version ?

I have also tried running the mysql_upgrade (as have databases from older xampp version) but have no idea if works as I get a 'black' box open and close so quickly I do not have time to read what it says in the box.

If it helps am using Windows 7 64bit

Any advice appreciated

Just to let you all know

Had to go back to earlier version of Xampp as newer version caused me endless issues (web pages were even taking longer to load)

Hope that I can continue to use older version for some time now as will not look forward to upgrading if going to cause me the amount of issues I had

Look at this topic down to the 6th post. It may provide a clue. Its a bit different but equally puzzling.

am afraid to even attempt to install and run the new xampp as have the older version running perfectly and spent a lot of time before trying to get new version to work without success so may just stay with the older version until such time as have to install newer version
