xampp apache won't start

Postby Woland » 15. July 2016 00:35

Even during installation I've got error messages for httpd.exe and php.exe after finishing installation I've installed MS c++ redistributable 2008 x86 now when I try to run apache from xampp panel nothing happens it just writes "Attempting to start Apache app..." mysql starts fine. When I run 'apache_start' 'setup_xampp' and 'test_php' script from xampp directory I get error message for php.exe or httpd.exe, it says that php/httpd.exe isn't valid win32 application, so what I can do to fix it??
here is the proof that I have installed ms visual c++ 2008 redistributable

Apache is a VC14 build, so you will additional need this in x86: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=52982
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Downloaded and installed that, then reboot, everything is still the same.
Any idea?

Xampp does not support Windows XP, only in very old releases (i dont know which was the last release, which supports XP, but is very very old).

Ooooh, that explain some things..
Also last time I had to install older versions of xampp, and now I had forgoten about that completely.
Last compatible version for XP is 1.8.2-6
Thanks!
