Apache starts then closes dowm

I share the same problem as cpkelly and would like your advice on this.

When executing apache_start.bat the response is:

Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden
Bitte erst bei einem gewollten Shutdown schliessen
Please close this command only for Shutdown
Apache 2 is starting ...
httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 555 of C:/xampp/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Could no
t open configuration file C:/xampp/apps/joomla/conf/httpd-prefix.conf: Le chemin
d\x92acc\xe8s sp\xe9cifi\xe9 est introuvable.

Apache konnte nicht gestartet werden
Apache could not be started
Appuyez sur une touche pour continuer...

I hope you can shed some light on this.
Have a good day/night.

Seems to me like a remnant from a uninstalled or moved Bitnami Joomla installation.
open your httpd.conf file and remove the relating Include Directive (somewhere at the end of the file).

Hi Altrea

Looks like you were spot on. There was an old version of httpd.conf in the 'apache' folder.

Many thanks.
