From your user profile it seems you are using MacOS 10.8.5, is that correct? In that case you should got an error that XAMPP-VM is not supported in that OS. Could you send us the output of executing the below command in a terminal?

sw_vers -productVersion

As a workaround, you can download the XAMPP installer that works in MacOS 10.6 or later ... load-apple

I have the same problem, when I tried to start services I got the same output.
I have MacOSX 10.9.5 Maverick, XAMPP-VM works on it?
I will appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance!
