2:44:41 PM [Apache] Uninstall/disable the other service manually first
2:44:41 PM [Apache] Found Path: "E:\xamp_server2\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice
2:44:41 PM [Apache] Expected Path: "g:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice

You need to unregister the windows services for Apache, MySQL etc.

Thanks Altrea, and I am sure that if I new what you were talking about it would be a great answer.

I didn't mean to sound snarky or ungrateful but the DEVIL is in the DETAILS.

I hope you found this funny it was meant to be.

Please provide details.

Start your XAMPP control panel with enhanced administrator rights (rightclick -> run as administrator).
You will see green tick icons next to each application (Apache, MySQL, etc.)
Click these tick icons and you will be asked if you want to unregister the service.

Get you some Windows tutorials etc., as this is basic Windows knowledge and has nothing to do with Xampp. I hope you dont find this answer snarky, you are absolutely right, the devil is in the details and the details are about Windows and nothing else!
