xampp install problems

Postby Yustme » 08. July 2010 13:57

Hi,

I can't get xampp to complete the setup successfully.

It fails at creating shortcuts with this error msg:

Fatal error: call to undefined method com::specialfolders() in D:\xampp\setup_xamp.bat on line 266

I have vista x64 bit. Is that supported?

Yes, also i turned that UAC thing off. So everything I start is standard as Admin.
But just to be sure, i did it with admin rights a few hours back.

What language is your Vista installation?
Have you tried answering "no" to the desktop shortcut prompt?

It's English. If i say no, then the next thing gives me an error too.

It's the part where it tries to relocate. This is the error msg i get then:

Fatal error: call to undefined method com::specialfolders() in D:\....\package__xamp.php on line 21.

Error: reloacating xampp not successful.

Well, I'm certain other xampp users are operating on 64-bit OS so maybe they'll chime in. From what I can tell, it would seem to be a problem with 32bit php. I'll keep looking but I don't have access to a 64 bit setup at the moment.

Ok, in the mean time, I get this error:

warning terminate worker thread 0

If i try to start Apache and IIRC, this had to do something with port 80 being in use.
Any idea which services that was in windows?


[EDIT]
Never mind, i found it! It's the service:

World Wide Web Publishing Service

Which you have to disable in your services window in order to start the Apache service.

For the record, i'm using vista x64 bit.

Hope it helps.

My php code doesn't get parsed. In fact, the browser just loads and finishes the loading. Nothing is being "echo'ed".

What am i missing?
