Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by ediko5(m): 9:20am On Apr 02, 2018
I was previously using my Xampp server on Windows 8 before i changed to Windows 7.

When i tried installing Xampp on my Windows 7, i got the alert on the screenshot attached below.

After the installation when i try starting the Apache i got " The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer"

I have granted permission to the Xampp server from my firewall but still not functioning.

Is the problem from my windows installation?

Please help.

try to download the missing file or you download lower version of xmapp that will be compatible with win 7
Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by 4kings: 9:38am On Apr 02, 2018
Download Download Visual C++ Redistributable or do a full system update.
Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by Bolaji21(m): 10:27am On Apr 02, 2018
It's most probably because of missing visual c++ package. Download the latest visual c++ and try again. If problem persist, try a lower version of xampp. And if problem persist go for wamp.
Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by ediko5(m): 3:55pm On Apr 02, 2018
Thanks developers for your response.

I have downloaded and installed Microsoft visual c++ 2018 redistributable yet it's still showing the same problem.

Here's the log shown in the Xampp control panel when i try to start Apache

This should be because you have two windows account on your computer. Try and login as an administrator and run xammp again.
Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by gilloway(m): 4:38pm On Apr 02, 2018
Do you have Skype? If yes please remove.
If after removing Skype and Xampp refuses to run, try running it as administrator (Right Click>> Run as Administrator).
If it still fails, open with compatibility mode(Right Click>>Troubleshoot Compatibility mode)

I love this response!...

Sincerely, I think the problem is because of another application that is making us of the PORT 80.

Skype is known to do such, so uninstall it and check or run as an administrator as he advised you.

Thanks brother, sincerely i have tried all possible ways but to no avail.

I haven't installed skype on this particular PC before.

I still believe its from my windows 7 ultimate installation.

I think i need to backup my files and switch to windows 8.

Also here are all my programs attached including UC browser just to know if any of them can cause this issue.

Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by ediko5(m): 6:37pm On Apr 07, 2018
Guys, I install Windows 8 and it came with the visual c++ redistributable 2008 to 2015.

I didn't install the xampp in the program files folder in the C: directory rather I created a xampp folder in the main C: ( but I also tried this on Win 7 ultimate and it didn't work).

I think the problem was from the Windows 7.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate you guys.

You're the best.

Did you actually check the port for apache and mysql ?
Re: Xampp Server User Please Come In And Assist by Budex40(m): 6:53pm On Apr 07, 2018
You have a program running the same port with xammp thats why it wont work.
Check ur modem software and see if they are not on the same port with xammp
