ERROR: Status Check Failure (198012)

I have newly installed xampp on windows 7 system. Root directory is C:xampp. When staring it shows that apache and mysql are started, but I get the following pop-up error message.

XAMPP Control Panel Version 2.5
Windows Build 6.1 7601 Platform 2 Service Pack 1
Current Directory: c:\xampp
Install (er) Directory: c:\xampp
ERROR: Status Check Failure (198012)
This program must be run from your XAMPP root directory.

What am I missing here? Isn't c:\xampp the root directory. XAMPP starts from there by default.

Thanks,

Hi

the initial release of teh Control Panel for 1.7.4 was very buggy

Try the XAMPP Control Panel 3
