FRESH XAMPP install Apache httpd wont execute [SOLVED}

Postby longinus » 07. October 2011 01:19

Hi

Within the past 5 hours i have:

-rebuilt old pc
-installed Windows XP Pro SP1
-then i updated to SP2 with all available updates
-setup Remote Desktop Management (i am aware this uses IIS)
-installed XAMPP (latest version 1.7.7 as of today)

Soooo i start XAMPP Control Panel and try to start the services Apache and MySQL.
MySQL starts and is running fine (green icon that says "Running")
BUT Apache does NOT.

The Error that i get when attempting to start HTTPD.EXE:
C:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling may fix this problem.
(i reinstalled -didnt work)

What I Have Tried:

-Editing HTTPD.CONF listen port to 81 from 80 (Windows IIS uses 80 so it would interfere)
-Then i DISABLED IIS
-Copied php5ts.dll and php_mysql.dll to apache\bin\ (this worked for someone on the internet)
-Verified php5apache2_2.dll existed in the xampp\php\
-Installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 re-distributional Package (this worked for someone on the internet)

I have researched/attempted to fix this problem with NO success.
please help im about to cry

...especially this post viewtopic.php?p=186131#p186131 near the end about downloading of the runtime file from Microsoft for older XP machines.

Good luck. :)

<3 You're an angel!

The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package that I initially downloaded was for 2005 ( :roll: oops)
...so make sure to get the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package

Problem SOLVED
-thanks Sharley

Latest news:
It has been pointed out that the latest runtime components will work on old and new Windows versions so you can get it from here:
