1. First check to see if the file "C:/php/sapi/php4apache2.dll" exists.
If I remember right, if you install with the executable this particular
dll is not included, but you can obtain the dll from the zip file.

2. Second check the Apache error log files "\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache2\logs" to see if there is any mention of a cause.
