I installed XAMPP 1.7.7 on Windows 7. While installing I have deactivated UAC. I selected Apache, MySQL & Filezilla to start as service. While Apache & filezilla started fine as service, MySQL simply said 'not started' from control panel. Unable to start manually too. Msg is "Error: MySQL Service not started".
However, if I start mysql_start.bat from xampp folder, MySQL is running. But this may need to be run everytime I boot the computer. I do not know why MySQL only not starting as windows service. I faced no problem when I installed in on XP system.
Thanks in adv,
