Kyle, you may download the latest version 3 XAMPP Control Panel from here,,,http://arloh.de/xampp/xampp_control3.0.2.zip
...which should fix your issue and possibly others that have not yet appeared.

It may be worth bookmarking or even subscribing to the above links so you can keep a watch out for any upgrades or for, perhaps, the latest news on this subject as the developer of this version is quite active in the above linked forum topic.
Hopefully this version of the XCP will be included in the next stable release as it's far superior to any of the previously released control panels.
Kyle, best wishes.
