For Apache:

Enter "ort 80 in use by "Unable to open process" with PID 4!" into Google.


For MySQL:

You already have installed another MySQL version onto your PC. See this message:

20:01:13 [mysql] Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
20:01:13 [mysql] Found Path: "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin\mysqld" --defaults-file="C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\my.ini" MySQL

Either de-install that MySQL installation or (if you already uninstalled it but it leaves the service entry in Windows), check your Windows Services and delete the MySQL Service.

Thank you for the prompt reply, and it did solve my problems! For Apache, it seems I have to reconfig the port on windows 10.

No, this is a bad option. Its far better to stop Microsoft IIS instead and use Port 80 for Apache.
