XAMPP – Apache service not working on Windows Xp

I’ve been installing XAMPP on Windows 7 for 2 to 3 times, which is always a simple install and Apache/PHP works fine. However, yesterday with the 1.8.0 version, I get the same problem on two Windows XP machines, here is what I downloaded:

It installed successfully without any errors:

MySQL works fine, but when I hit the “Start” button to start Apache it says “Running” and then it stops running again in like 2/3 secs:

I had tried every possible way to free the port 80. For example, Disabled option that “Use port 80” in Skype and Teamviewer as well. But, still no luck:

The solution to this problem is really simple, just download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86):

Then hit the “Start” button to start Apache:

Type http://localhost/ and hit Enter, this time it will present you with the xampp default web page:

Hope this will help you!

Please Remember me in your prayers!

Enjoy 🙂
