XAMMP and WAMP allow you to run WordPress on your PC, but I prefer to use WAMP, that’s why I want to uninstall XAMMP that I have installed before.
I’m using Windows Vista, I found that I can’t even uninstall XAMMP and this caused WAMP cannot be run properly. I have tried to find solution from Internet but unfortunately I can’t get any help from that. I nearly give up to give it a try, I was thinking that to format pc and install back Windows again in order to solve this problem.
After that, I suddenly figured out that normally Windows Vista requires us to run software and application that we install as administrator. That’s right! All you need to do is to run xampp-control.exe as administrator (right click xampp-control.exe file and choose Run as Administrator), and then stop the Apacha and My SQL, then you can uninstall without any problem.
