Conflict with prior Apache installation

Postby dbbrandtct » 07. August 2014 12:53

I installed XAMPP v1.8.3 on Windows 7 and it appeared to install correctly. When I try to start the XAMPP Control Panel I get the following error messages:

7:23:27 AM [Apache] Apache Service detected with wrong path
7:23:27 AM [Apache] Change XAMPP Apache and Control Panel settings or
7:23:27 AM [Apache] Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
7:23:27 AM [Apache] Found Path: "C:\Apache24\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice
7:23:27 AM [Apache] Expected Path: "c:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice

I am a novice user and am not sure what the above messages are trying to tell me. I did have a prior version of Apache running successfully. I thought I had uninstalled that version prior to installing XAMPP but the error messages seem to indicate that is not the case. I don't find Apache in the list of installed programs but I still see its old directory (Apache24) and all the associated files on my system.

What steps do I need to take to resolve the above issue(s).

Thanks in advance for your help.
