Installing XAMPP To A Drive Other Than Windows’ Default

If you install XAMPP to a drive other than the one Windows is installed on, e.g., D:\, and you’re using the compressed version (.zip or .7z) instead of the Installer (.exe), make sure to run setup_xampp.bat. You probably won’t be able to start the MySQL service if you don’t.

This applies to Windows 7 MCE x64 & XAMPP 1.8.1. This may or may not apply to other OS’es and/or versions of XAMPP.
