win32: Apache as service fails?

Hi there,

I'm new to subversion and I am trying to install it on a windows xp machine
and I am encountering some weird problems. At first I installed it to my
local machine where I had no web-server and so I installed apache-2.0.47 and
subversion and it worked fine.

Now I want to move to a "real" server where apache1.3 is already installed.
So I installed apache (same version as above) and subversion on another port
(8100) and it is working fine as long as I don't start apache2 as a service.
When I am trying to start apache2 as service by invoking "net start apache2"
I always get the error (the original text is in german so it might be a bad

"Service could'nt be start due to a service specific error: 1. You can get
more information by invoking net helpmsg 3547".

But the message given there is not of much help either.

As soon as I comment out the subversion-specific linces in httpd.conf
apache2 can be started as service.

So do you have any idea what is going on there?

With regards
Tino Schoellhorn
