I have had this problem for many versions of Apache (since 2.0) and it
has yet to be resolved.  I have found that Apache will run in a Command
Window, but not as a service.  Don't know why, have asked many Apache
gurus here and "in the cloud" with no resolution.

If you find a solution please pass it on.
