More detailed info:

Actual Problem:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package was not installed.

Download and install:

Thanks for posting this but the topic has been well covered in these forums as a search would have revealed.

One indication that the runtime file may be needed is there are no log files in the apache\log folder as they are created and entries added when ever Apache starts and stops.

New users can find self help by reading these first:
readme_en.txt file in the xampp folder.

Some useful reading that may help you help us to find suitable solutions:
