Okay, your netstat don't give more information. Port 80 is blocked by system as already known.

The control panel v3 is included in XAMPP 1.7.7 as beta version (more specific the control panel v3.0.2 is included). You can find it in the base directory like where the control panel v 2.5 is saved too.

You don't need to "update" it. You can simply download the current control panel version v3.0.8 from [url=http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48932]this thread[/quote] and extract the control-panel-v3.exe into your base directory. Thats all you have to do. Ready for take off
