Hmm, actually it should show a green "started" next to the Apache service. When you check your Windows processes, is there anything related to httpd or Apache? – slhck Oct 17 '11 at 11:43
Can you right-click on Computer in your Start-menu and click on properties? Is 32-bit or 64-bit Operating system listed under System type:? – Duijf Oct 17 '11 at 11:44
It is a 64 bit OS and when I check process there is nothing related to httpd or apache – Registered User Oct 17 '11 at 11:52
Try checking for more details in the Apache log file. Should be under E:\xamp\xampp\apache\logs\error_log (from the top of my head, might slightly differ), that should give more details on what's going wrong. – Oldskool Oct 17 '11 at 12:50
