Hi experts,

  Ive installed XAMP on my W7 machine. In order to start Apache server i need to stop IIS server. Form command line i use the "IISRESET STOP" but i got the error message "The RPC server is unavailable". Apache did not start.
  What service i need to start? Any help will be highly appreciated.
   Thank you in advance.

    Start>>run>>inetmgr>>Right click and stop IIS. I believe that IIS and Apache use the same port that's why required iis to stop in order to start apache.

    did you try starting the remote procedure call service? or stopping the W3SVC service?

    you could go through the apache.config files and look for 80 and change it to say 81 (you will find it in 2 locations)
