I have downloaded XAMPP latest version and installed it successfully but cannot use it.
Because Apache refuses to start.
I see the following messages in the control panel.

I run XAMPP under administrator rights.
Also i have tried to change the Main and SSSL ports for Apache but it do lead to success.
Also I tried to find some information in log files about this issue but without success:
- Apache access and error logs seems do not exist at all
- and I cannot find any records for this issue in Windows logs.
Please, help to solve the problem.
