I am using XAMPP, version 3.2.1. I just installed it on Windows 8. Every time I need to go to the XAMPP Control Panel to start services (MySQL, Apache,...); in windows 7 it started automatically when Windows came up.
Is there any way I can make it auto-start in Windows 8 too?
Start the control panel using "Run as administrator", then you can install apache, Mysql as a service.
