Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

MySQL won't start in Windows 2000 pro

Postby serge007 » 01. October 2011 19:27

When trying to start MySQL in XAMPP control panel, I receive the following error message:

"The procedure entry point MiniDumpWriteDump could not be located in the dynamic link library dbghelp.dll"

I disabled firewall, port 3306 seems to be available (not 100% sure though).

I am using Windows 2000 pro, SP4
XAMPP for Windows 1.7.7, 20.9.2011
XAMPP Control Panel 2.5

Any suggestions for troubleshooting would be appreciated. Thank you.

See if using the new V3 Control Panel gives a better indication of the problem, though your problem may not be WAMPP related but rather another previous installation of XAMPP or even another app. on your PC might include a MySQL instance and is stopping MySQL from starting in XAMPP:

Good luck. :)

I went poking through the MySQL site and forums. It appears this is a common problem with Win 2k users. Once Microsoft ended support for Win 2k, MySQL decided to end support for it as of last January. Some people have managed to wrap the DLLs but the easiest solution I think is that you will need to use an older XAMPP version that includes an older version of MySQL that is supported on Win 2k. I am not sure about all the supported versions but it looks like versions including and prior to 5.1.41 will work. I am not sure which versions of XAMPP will have the proper MySQL versions included.

XAMPP 1.7.1 uses MySQL 5.1.33 and can be downloaded from here:
SourceForge XAMPP File Repository

Xampp versions after that switched to MySQL 5.3.*

Thank you, Sharley. I downloaded XAMPP 1.7.1 from repository and it works like a charm in Win 2000.
