Hi EE,

What's the reason behind the following error (see attached) I am getting mixed results when I google it, I am current the local admin on my PC and when I change port numbers in the .ini file (attached) xampp just tries to pick random ones.

Attached is the log file as well no clues I can see here.

Any assistance is welcome.


Thank you.
