mod_dav_svn does not start on apache 2.0.45 (win32)

I do not get Apache 2.0.45 to start with Subversion's 0.21.0 mod_dav_svn.so
Upon start, Apache reports:

  The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> Cannot load C:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/modules/mod_dav_svn.so
into server: Le module spécifié est introuvable. .

"Le module spécifié est introuvable" means "module not found"... although
C:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/modules/mod_dav_svn.so exists (dated
23.01.2003 01:38, 236Ko).

I installed Apache HTTPD 2.0.45 (binary distribution) on a win2000 server. I
started the service as a specific 'apache' user, set up the security
accordingly, and everything runs fine, listening on port 8080.

I then installed Subversion 0.21.0 (binary distribution), which works fine
also. I can access the repository using the local filesystem.

I copied the %SVN_HOME%/apache2/modules/mod_dav_svn.so to Apache's own
modules directory and inserted the following LoadModules directives in

  LoadModule dav_module modules/mod_dav.so
  LoadModule dav_fs_module modules/mod_dav_fs.so
  LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so

I also checked for security restrictions: my apache user has full read/write
access to Subversion's repository directories (F:\database\svnroot) and to
Apache's directories (C:\Program Files\Apache\Apache 2).

I read the documentation for some clue, but did not find anything.

I previously managed to get everything to work with Apache 2.0.44 and
Subversion 0.17.1.

What I am doing wrong?
