Yes there is, in the \xampp\readme_en.txt file.donnyb wrote:Are there any special instructions to do this?
For some users that is possible but for others it has been difficult if using the installer exe version, but the remedy for most 64 bit installation issues has been to use the zip version and then to run the setup_xampp.bat file in the xampp folder, (but do not run the setup bat file if installing to a portable device).donnyb wrote:By the way, I am using Windows 7-64 bit and have installed XAMPP without any problems.
Correct, but you still may be able to use the XAMPP Control Panel (\xampp\xampp-control.exe) to start and stop the components but don't tick the Svc check boxes as they will install the components as a Windows Service (start them when you boot) which will defeat the portability of your installation.donnyb wrote:So, basically I unzip the package onto my USB stick and use the start.bat and the stop.bat for each item I want to start and stop. That is, I do not install the package, just unzip and use the batch files. Is this correct?
