You have already a MySQL Installation and a running server - simply read the error message:

Problem detected!
Port 3306 in use by ""D:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.6/bin\mysqld" --defaults-file="D:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\my.ini" MySQL56_1"!
MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
PM [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port


That means you have an active MySQL installed in D:/Program Files/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.6 (as the message clearly says). And this collides with your Xampp MySQL.

Yea. But I was not running MySQL at this instance. I use MySQL for other projects and cannot uninstall it. Is there a way I can change port for xxamp MySQL and use it? How can I reconfigure MySQL??
