XAMPP Apache not starting - php7ts.dll?

Postby Aleks » 09. March 2018 19:09

I've just installed XAMMP 7.2.2 (x64) on Vista, but am unable to start Apache. Each and every time, I get the following error message :

« Apache 2 is starting ... htttpd.exe : Syntax error on line 532 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf : Syntax error on line 17 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/extra/httpd-xampp.conf : Cannot load /xampp/php/php7ts.dll into server : The specified procedure cannot be found." »

The php7ts.dll file is where it should be.

Line 532 of httpd.conf says : « Include "conf/extra/httpd-xampp.conf" ».

And line 17 in that second file (httpd-xampp.conf) says: « LoadFile "/xampp/php/php7ts.dll" »

I have Visual C++ 2015 (x64) installed on Vista.

XAMPP does not release 64bit versions for windows.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)

OK, fair point. The website I downloaded it from made it sound like it was a 64-bit version, but it turns out it was a version *compatible* with the 64-bit version of Vista (which doesn't mean much, if anything, I guess). So it's a 32-bit version.
So I have uninstalled Visual C++ 2017 (x64) and reinstalled the 32-bit version of it, since it apparently can lead to that sort of problem. Tried to restart XAMPP...got the same error message. I still have older versions of Visual C++ installed, and they're 64-bit, though. Could that be the issue ? And if not, what is ?
