I can't start portable XAMPP 1.8.3 on windows 7

Today i downloaded the 7zip package of XAMPP 1.8.3 and i am launching the control panel with the portable launcher form portableapps.com. But apache and mysql services won't start. This is the log from control panel:

The error log files doesn't show anything and i don't have other programs that are using port 80. For DocumentRoot and Directory i have this set:
DocumentRoot "E:\PortableApps\XAMPP\App\xampp\htdocs"
<Directory "E:\PortableApps\XAMPP\App\xampp\htdocs">

I hope someone can help find why apache and mysql doesn't want to start.

Thanks!
