MySQL Service is detected with wrong path error

Postby » 06. August 2014 01:00

I am new to this forum so please bear with me. I have been trying for a few hours to get MySQL to start in XAMPP for Windows 8.1 which I just installed for the first time. The error code is below. Based on other posts I have read, here is what I have already tried: It says I am not running with administrator rights but I went to Control Panel User Accounts and it says that I am an administrator and the only administrator I went into Program Files(x86) and there is no MySQL folder there. I tried going into services. MySQL is Stopped. I can't start it; it says Windows can't find the file. I edited both the ini files for MySQL and php to change the port from 3306 to 3308. I tried going into cmd to delete mysql and also to create a service entry. Both times I got an error message that said "Open Service FAILED 5: Access is Denied. I'd appreciate any help you can give to get this working. Thanks.
