windows 11 apache 2.4 will start from command line but NOT as a service from either xampp or services dialog

  apache, windows, xampp

Apache 2.4 was installed with xampp-windows-x64-8.0.10-0-VS16-installer.exe
Windows 11 Insider Preview 22449.1000

from the command line in the apachebin directory: .httpd.exe
runs and logs appropriately.

However, not when attempting to start as a service.

[ServicePorts]
Apache=8080
ApacheSSL=4433

checked using "netstat -ano" and resmon.exe and determined the above two ports were being used when run as a process.

any help would be appreciated.
