Hey guys

After some hours of trying, I still have the problem that apache don't want run. Here is the complete output of my console:

13:17:10 [main] Initializing Control Panel
13:17:10 [main] Windows Version: Windows 8 64-bit
13:17:10 [main] XAMPP Version: 5.6.3
13:17:10 [main] Control Panel Version: 3.2.1 [ Compiled: May 7th 2013 ]

13:17:16 [Apache] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,

13:17:16 [Apache] the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
13:17:16 [Apache] If you need more help, copy and post this
13:17:16 [Apache] entire log window on the forums

What I already tryed:

1) I schwitched off my fierwall
2) I ensured that that skype is not running on port 80 and 143
3) I followed the following steps (without knowing what I'm doing) :?

Configure HTTP.sys to only bind to IPv6

Only bind to IPv6 has the advantage that HTTP.sys can still be used without influencing Apache on IPv4 anymore.

Open your Windows commandline with elevated administrative rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator)
type in the following command
netsh http add iplisten ipaddress=::

If http://localhost will still not work after that, you need to resolve localhost to the IPv4 address

Open your notepad with elevated administrative rights (rightclick -> run as Administrator)
With File -> Open navigate to your \Windows\sytsem32\drivers\etc\ folder
change your filetype from Textfiles (*.txt) to All Files (*.*)
open your hosts file
add the following line
Save the file

I really appreciate any helps and hints. thx

You missed the most important step.
Execute the file apache_start.bat and read the response of it which contains the true issue.

Best wishes,
