I have followed the suggestions in the different post and still cannot get apache to start up. I cannot find any program using port 80. I changed the port to 8080 still does not start up. When I run httpd from the bin directory nothing is returned.
I found the source of my issue. I am using Windows7 64 bit. The security on my PC is locked down to help prevent viruses and such. So you cannot write to the root C: partition. When Ampps is installed in the default location (C:\) Apache wants to write log files in the C:\ directory. Installing in a different drive fixed the issue.
