Found path and Expecting path

Postby Annette » 10. July 2015 15:26

I used Xampp installed by the Installer on my C: drive and everyting was okay. But C: drive is almost full now. So I decided to move Xampp to E: drive which is empty. I used Uninstaller to uninstall Xampp from C: drive and downloaded a zip-version of Xampp to E: drive, unpacked it and ran setup-xampp.bat. When I ran xampp-control.exe I got this message:

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

I tried to start mysql from control panel anyway and got this message:

Apache Service detected with wrong path
Change XAMPP Apache and Control Panel settings or
Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
Found Path: "C:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice
Expected Path: "e:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice
Problem detected!
Port 3306 in use by "Unable to open process"!
MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

Now I am rather lost. Should I look for some remains of the older version of Xampp on C: drive? Or the problem is mysql and ports in use? What is the "blocking application"? Please help!

The problem is that there are registered services left.
Please unregister the service for Apache and MySQL in your Windows cmd (started with elevated administrator rights: rightclick -> run as administrator)
Code: Select all
sc delete Apache2.4

Code: Select all
sc delete mysql
