Did using the zip install method help any? Does running the Tomcat7.exe still not work?

Removed the old XAMPP, fresh installed it using the zip and the tomcat7.exe still closes after launching it.

I did some poking around and I think this is an issue with mixing 64 bit java with the 32 bit Tomcat7.exe. I manually updated my Tomcat on my dev box to be 64 bit version some time ago and forgot about it.

That said you probably have a couple options:
1. Install a 32-bit version of JRE/JDK and force it to use it (comment out the parts that search for native 64-bit versions in the registry)
2. Manually update your Tomcat to the 64-bit version (should be able to download the zip version http://tomcat.apache.org/download-70.cgi and more or less overwrite the files)

Awesome!
The 64-bit version of Tomcat worked.

Thanks for all the help!

Great. Could a mod move the above tomcat discussion into a separate thread as the issue was not related to the control panel.

Topic has been split as requested.

I will close this topic and mark it solved.

Please feel free to start a new topic if you have any more issues with XAMPP for Windows.
