After a power outage, when I rebooted, my XAMPP Mysql was corrupted.  After trying to fix this manually, I gave up and uninstalled / reinstalled XAMPP with a fresh download of the latest version.  

After downloading, I ran the install as administrator and all appeared fine, until I tried to start Apache from the control panel.

I have attached the error log.  I suspect this may be related to file permissions, but I don't know which ones.  I am the only user of this Windows 10 PC.

Thanks for your help.
