Xampp: Error: pxp.exe failed!

Postby Urdz » 30. July 2015 15:53

Hello,

I'm having this problem for the past two days because I am new to Xampp. Everything else is working only Apache is attempting to start but then nothing happens. I tried most of the suggestions I've found on the web, but any of them worked. I've changed the ports and everything.

When I run Xampp test section I get this:

[ERROR]: Test php.exe failed !!!
[ERROR]: Perhaps the Microsoft C++ 2008 runtime package is not installed.
[ERROR]: Please try to install the MS VC++ 2008 Redistributable Package from the Microsoft page first
[ERROR]: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582
----

I installed c++ 2008 quite a time ago. Also when I try to run apache in services I get: Windows could not start Apache 2.4 service on Local Computer.
Error 2: Folder not found, or something like that.

I'm dying for some help, thank you.

Hi,

install it again:

It has to be exactly this version

best wishes,

Thank you, I re-installed it, but it's still the same error. I don't get it.
