Would you be so kind as to add your Operating System to your profile as per these instructions:
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=48626
This will help us and you so you don't need to provide it every time you posts here.
Thanks. :)

Thanks for your understanding why we ask for your OS to be included in your profile. :shock:

Read the apache error.log file for clues why Apache can't start.

Thanks for that. :)

If you find there are no log files created in the \xampp\apache\logs directory then you may be missing the runtime file (Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)) as XAMPP for Windows 1.7.7 is compiled using VC9 as opposed to older versions that used VC6 to compile Apache.

Certainly Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 may well not have this runtime file and so would need it to be installed so Apache can start.
