-------I am using the following: xampp v1.8.1 xampp Control Panel v3.1.0 Beta 4 Windows 7
------I have Xampp installed on a flashdrive.
------The "Control Panel" will come up but when i try to "Start" MySQL i get the following error message: 12:26:15 PM [mysql] Error: MySQL shutdown unexpectedly. 12:26:15 PM [mysql] This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies, 12:26:15 PM [mysql] improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method. 12:26:15 PM [mysql] Check the "/xampp/mysql/data/mysql_error.log" file 12:26:15 PM [mysql] and the Windows Event Viewer for more clues
-----Also, if i try to run MySQL through a command prompt i get this error message:
E:\xampp\mysql\bin>mysql -u root ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
If anyone can help that would be great. Ask me for any other info you may need in order to help me with this. I've looked for the answer myself and couldn't find it.

You appear to be missing required files.
1. How did you install XAMPP (Installer/zip/7z)? 2. Did you uninstall all related services before uninstalling XAMPP and the standalone components? 3. Could you provide the entire output of the XAMPP control panel log window?
