At this point everything looks normal except that you cannot get the
page to load. And I do not know what is wrong, though this complaint
seems quite common. 

I have one other suggestion. 

My builds start and work without any pre-configuration - though you will
most certainly want to make some later (like add mod_ssl or mod_deflate)
- at this point you just want to get a server up and running.

Download one of my builds from one of these locations...

Uninstall the other version...

cd to the \apache\bin directory and type
apache -k uninstall

Leave your code there for now unless it is in c:\apache (else delete

Unzip my build into c:\apache

Don't modify any config information - the server should start as it is
and give to a page when you use http://localhost. 

cd to c:\apache\bin and type
apache -k install

then apache -k start

Check now to see if you can load the new installation page.

Let me know if you can get this version working.

You can decied later how you want to get your binaries... from the
automatic install or mine (manual - but simple).
