Did you copy

into your apache modules directory?

Also, have you tried starting apache manually from the command line
instead of as a service? This usually causes any error to be dumped to
the console that the service manager otherwise loses. e.g.

C:>cd "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin"

C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin>Apache.exe

Hope this helps,
