That means that APache cannot launch at all - not that it 'almost' there. (so, by not being present, it is telling us something)
You should try using the Netstat button to see if both ports 80 & 443 are free.
In the same order of thinking there should be an exception in your firewall for httpd.exe in whatever folder your xampp\apache is installed in
For instance, on this machine that is : C:\xampp\apache\bin
Its also possible that an OS error is preventing it from running.
Check the Windows Event Viewer, Applications and System logs.
I'm betting on port-blocking by a firewall, but its just a guess.
