is your Windows 32 or 64 Bit?

Its most likely NOT a problem with your installation

The original control panel and install had some issues.

Before throwing hands in the air

Read:

after it is unpacked copy xammp-control3.exe to the c:\xampp folder, then start it by double-clicking.

Good Luck

hi,

now everything works fine. The only thing that changed is that i am running that file to start xampp instead of the original one.

Now i have another problem, and i am wondering if it is not related to the same issue.

I tried to install a pear package. but i have the following error:
----
C:\Users\me>pear install HTML_QuickForm2-beta
downloading HTML_QuickForm2-0.6.0.tgz ...
Starting to download HTML_QuickForm2-0.6.0.tgz (156,935 bytes)
.................................done: 156,935 bytes

...done: 7,777 bytes
ERROR: failed to mkdir C:\php\pear\tests\HTML_Common2
