unable to install xampp on windows 8


I am having errors while Installing Xamp 32 bit packages on 64 bit windows 8.1

(I could not get 64 bit downloads for windows 8 from Xampp page https://sourceforge.net/projects/xam...Windows/7.2.9/)

I installed Xampp in G:\software installations\xamp

[visual c++ redistributable missing error][1]
[apache port 443 error][2]

what is solution for these errors?how to fix them?

Microsoft visual C++ all redistributable are properly there in the system.
You can see this snapshot.
[microsoft all re distributables present][3]

I tried running Ubuntu 16 in Vmware but I ran in memory issues so had to go to windows,

Wouldn't you be best asking on a Windows forum given that you are trying to install a Windows program on Windows?

But you are trying to install the Windows version of XAMPP on Windows. I'm just saying that you would have a greater chance of success posting your issue on a Windows forum.

The XAMPP forums are here:

Ish...there is a Linux version, but you're asking about the windows version, so I agree that you should look for help elsewhere.

That said, I think your error message is pretty clear. You're already running a web server, so the one included in xampp can't start because the port isn't available.

Shut down the existing web server first.

Don't mess around with VMs. Run only on bare metal.

Then back up the data, reformat the HD and install Debian, Devuan, or CentOS. Add Apache2, MariaDB or MySQL, and OpenSSH server, then restore the data. That will solve the XAMPP problem and get you basic LAMP service with all the advantages.
