Why don't you move the backuped xampp files from your win7 system to your new win8.1 system and start it from there?

No. XAMPP is pretty much movable. All needed files are commonly inside the \xampp\ folder.

"not starting" is no quallified issue report. Did you get some error messages? log files contents? control panel contents?
You need to execute the setup_xampp.bat file if the path is different from the previous installation path. Did you do that?
starting apache_start.bat should give you some response. What response do you get?

MySQL can run without Apache
phpMyAdmin is a PHP application. PHP needs Apache in the XAMPP environment.

Why wpuld you ask that if you already have the whole \xampp\ folder?
It is different which files you would need depending on which webapplication you wrote/installed.

Well, at the end you will need both, the databases and the htdocs files to get your applications running.

Without any new information giving any further hints is impossible.
