1. Did you run it with Admin privileges?
2. Do you have any log fragments in xampp-control.log? (newest entries will be at the bottom)
Could you try the latest development build:https://www.dropbox.com/s/6uzktnh241pn2 ... g-321_7.7z
If you get an exception window, could you PM the contents to me and I would be happy to work with you to get it resolved.

best thing I can say to a C programmer is:
- check anything with pointers or arrays that it is not out of bounds (this might be the case with an access violation)
- or a pointer is trying to access memory not belonging to it,
- or someone forgot to allocate memory (oops).
- forgetting to free memory is another problem.
- so is freeing memory on a pointer and then trying to use it.
- calling a win32 api function with bad parameters (!)
- calling a win32 api function with parameters from an older copy of the MSDN (the API's data types DO change over time, including WinMain()) (!)
this looks pointer related or possibly Win32 API related.
think about these things when debugging code.
what is "PM" - postmark? postal mail?
