Not sure what this error means.
I'm using XAMPP 1.8.2 on Windows 7 64-bit. I am using the Control Panel 3.2.1.
I installed XAMPP just to have a php development environment but already had apache. I uninstalled XAMPP and re-installed with just Apache and PHP in the hopes that I could use it as is with Microsoft SQL Server (which I'd prefer to use). After downloading and attempting to find the proper directory for several 'missing' dll files, I gave up, uninstalled MSSQL Server, uninstalled XAMPP and reinstalled XAMPP with apache, php, and mysql. Now I'm getting a MySQL error:

Really not savvy enough to decipher a lot of that but perhaps someone could help (at this point, the lasso things that happened were XAMPP being installed again and THEN MSSQL Server being uninstalled. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall XAMPP again to remove the conflict on port 3306?)
