Everytime I install Xampp on my computer installation ends with 2 messages.
C:\xampp\apache\bin\httpd.exeis not a valid win32 application;
C:\xampp\php\php.exeis not a valid win32 application.
Tell me please what's the problem?

OS is winxp sp3.
The Apache Friends download page for XAMPP states that Windows XP is no longer supported by the application. However, an alternative link is given for this OS.
Windows XP or 2003 are not supported. You can download a compatible version of XAMPP for these platforms here.
It seems that the latest version of XAMPP that is compatible with Windows XP is 1.8.2.
I just went through this trying to set up my old XP machine with XAMPP.
Do not use the 1.8.2 downloads from Sourceforge: they are either corrupt or invalid, or they come with the files but no executable installer.
Use this 1.8.1 link instead, which comes with the installer: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Windows/1.8.1/
If you need an older version, just change the last part of the link to the version number you want.
These should be much easier to install, and should just work.
