Apache doesn't start in my XAMPP

I installed “xampp-windows-x64-7.4.11-0-VC15-installer” some months ago.
And I used to run Apache server and mySQL.
Today I downloaded and installed “xampp-windows-x64-8.0.0-2-VS16-installer”
When I open the control pannel, it says like the following.

I didn’t select Mercury and Tomcat during installation because I don’t use them.
As I click start button of Apache, it says like the following.

What is wrong on the Apache of my XAMPP in your think?
I hope I can fix it with your help.

Did you completely uninstall all the components of XAMPP before installing the new version? I would recommend Laragon as an alternative to XAMPP.

Very likely the problem. OP, what does the error log say?

Now a days mostly DEVS uses Docker.

Citation please. By the way, the statement is known as the “Bandwagon Fallacy”.
