I take that to mean c:\xampp that was mentioned in my reinstall using zip instructions, is that correct?

Yes. And I don't have AVG installed, but have Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Try first to disable Symantec product and try again and if successful then find out how to configure it to allow the XAMPP components.

Then read the posts by CookieRevised on another forum as it might help to get your system sorted out:

Seems there is no easy fix but the above link has some useful tips.

Your issue is not XAMPP related but rather your Windows OS that is causing this problem and you may find at some later date that this issue pops up again unless you fix it.

If everything offered here fails then you may like to try installing an older XAMPP version, there is a link to sourceforge at the top of the XAMPP for Windows home page.

From the error that was posted, you are probably missing the Visual C++ runtimes required to run the applications. XAMPP 1.7.7 was compiled with VC++ 9 (aka VC++ 2008). You could try getting the proper runtimes and see if that solves your problems (you will probably want the x86 runtimes since that is the version that I believe was used to compile it):

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/de ... x?id=15336

Your Windows Event Log might give you more details and confirm this (if the error coming up has something to do with VC9 not being found).

Thank you so much. It finally works. :D

I have a suggestion that may isolate the issue - and not take all that long -

I suggest you DL good, old stable 1.7.3 (zip version) which is a VC6 compile.

extract it and move it to say: c:\xampp173.

See if it fires right up.

Edit - Well I see Hackattack is somewhat on the same wavelength - maybe even dead on - I need to check something also -

I am also using Server 2008 R2 64 bit. All that was needed was to install the VC 2008 runtime for x86 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5582). (I then had to reinstall, but if you install the VC stuff first, you'll get it right the first time.)
