Control Panel Freezes when i try to start XAAMP

Postby lised » 25. July 2013 21:24

When i run the control panel (as administrator), i get this:
Code: Select all
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Initializing Control Panel
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Windows Version: Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit
12:37:54 PM  [main]    XAMPP Version: ???
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Control Panel Version: 3.1.0 3.1.0 [ Compiled: September 20th 2012 ]
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Running with Administrator rights - good!
12:37:54 PM  [main]    XAMPP Installation Directory: "c:\xampp\"
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Checking for prerequisites
12:37:54 PM  [main]    All prerequisites found
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Initializing Modules
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Starting Check-Timer
12:37:54 PM  [main]    Control Panel Ready

then I try to start XAAMP I get the (not responding) and it greys out if i click anywhere. It just freezes.

if it helps, if i run it NOT as administrator, i get this:
Code: Select all
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Initializing Control Panel
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Windows Version: Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit
12:43:36 PM  [main]    XAMPP Version: ???
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Control Panel Version: 3.1.0 3.1.0 [ Compiled: September 20th 2012 ]
12:43:36 PM  [main]    You are not running with administrator rights! This will work for
12:43:36 PM  [main]    most application stuff but whenever you do something with services
12:43:36 PM  [main]    there will be a security dialogue or things will break! So think
12:43:36 PM  [main]    about running this application with administrator rights!
12:43:36 PM  [main]    XAMPP Installation Directory: "c:\xampp\"
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Checking for prerequisites
12:43:36 PM  [main]    All prerequisites found
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Initializing Modules
12:43:36 PM  [Apache]    Apache Service detected with wrong path
12:43:36 PM  [Apache]    Change XAMPP Apache settings or
12:43:36 PM  [Apache]    Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
12:43:36 PM  [Apache]    Found Path: ERROR: Not Able To Open Service Manager
12:43:36 PM  [Apache]    Expected Path: "c:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice
12:43:36 PM  [mysql]    MySQL Service detected with wrong path
12:43:36 PM  [mysql]    Change XAMPP MySQL settings or
12:43:36 PM  [mysql]    Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
12:43:36 PM  [mysql]    Found Path: ERROR: Not Able To Open Service Manager
12:43:36 PM  [mysql]    Expected Path: c:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe --defaults-file=c:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini mysql
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Starting Check-Timer
12:43:36 PM  [main]    Control Panel Ready

and then when i try to start Apache:
Code: Select all
12:43:38 PM  [EXCEPTION]    System Error. Code: 5.
Access is Denied
12:43:38 PM  [EXCEPTION]     Access violation at address 005ABEFE in module 'xaamp-control.exe'. Read of address

(and i did not get the last bit after "adress" because it went out of the area in the window, and it wasn't letting me move or cut and paste to see it. If I try doing it again while resizing the window before starting apache it just freezes without giving me the last three lines at all...) sorry i don't have a hosted image site or i would include a picture

and in case you ask me to try running "apache_start.bat" in the main XAMPP folder", umm. I don't actually know what that means???

additional info: windows vista, 1.8.1-0, and this worked after I installed it. recently i installed "railsinstaller" which includes these items:
Ruby 1.9.3-p392
Rails 3.2
Bundler
Git
Sqlite
osx-gcc-installer
JewelryBox
RVM
SM Framework

maybe there's a conflict there?
thank you for any help
