This is my first time using XAMPP, but it's required to use for my PHP course. My laptop is using Windows 7 Professional 64bit (freshly reformatted), and I extracted xampp-win32-1.7.3.zip to C:\xampp. I used the default settings during setup. In the Control Panel, I check Apache and MySQL, but when I press start, it says "Apache service started" but does not change to running. The same thing happens to MySQL. Any help would be appreciated!
Also, I don't use Skype.
