I'm running windows XP SP3, Xampp version 1.7.7. I've opened up port 80, 81, 443 and 3306. Apache starts and stops fine with no issue and I am able to view the Xampp home page locally (I'll only be running it for local use). When I start MySQL it says it's starting then dies with no error message. This is what I'm receiving in the error file:
- Code: Select all

I do not have any previous versions of mysql running on my machine, just the one installed with xampp. I am unable to find any "xamppfiles" directory as mentioned here: http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?p=153428
Any help is greatly appreciated,
