+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows 95, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Skiping the long explanation, nothing less than Windows 98 is going 
+   to get you anywhere at this point.  Upgrade.  Or install a free 
+   <strong>and</strong> supported operating system.</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows 98 or ME, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Pre-NT support is no longer provided; however, the Apache HTTP Project has 
+   not deliberately defeated your efforts.  You really aught to upgrade or 
+   install a free <strong>and</strong> supported operating system, as none
+   of the developers even have these versions installed anywhere, anymore.
+   Bugs specific to the Windows 9x family will not be addressed, as Microsoft
+   has completely ended the Windows 9x products life cycle.  That said, it had
+   worked at one time.</p>
+
+<p>First upgrade to at least Internet Explorer 6, Service Pack 1.
+   You don't have to use it, but it just happens to include updates and 
+   bug fixes you must install, including the wldap32.dll that Apache 2.2 
+   <strong>requires</strong> to start.  Alternately, you can refer to
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;288358"
+   >KB article 288358</a>, along with the troublesome-to-obtain update from
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323455"
+   >KB article 323455</a>.  If you already have wldap32.dll in your 
+   Windows\System32 directory with version 5.0.2168.1, you are fine.
+   If you are installing on Windows 98, <a href="#msi">obtain the MSI 
+   installer</a> if you have not done so before (Windows ME users are
+   in the clear, it was installed with the operating system).</p>
+
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows NT 4.0, <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Windows NT support is being abandoned; however, the Apache HTTP Project has 
+   not deliberately defeated your efforts.  You really aught to upgrade or 
+   install a free <strong>and</strong> supported operating system, as none
+   of the developers even has this version installed anywhere, anymore.
+   Bugs specific to Windows NT will rarely be addressed, as Microsoft
+   has completely ended the Windows NT 4.0 product life cycle.  There are 
+   a number of features in Apache HTTP Server and the APR portability
+   runtime which require Windows 2000 or later support.  That said, it worked
+   at one time.</p>
+
+<p>Install the Windows NT Service Pack 6a or later.  Then, note the comments
+   above with respect to installing support for wldap32.dll (beyond obtaining 
+   this update from Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1) refer to the page
+   <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/Other/adclient.asp"
+   >http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/Other/adclient.asp</a>.
+   Again, we are looking for wldap32.dll in your Windows\System32 directory
+   with version 5.0.2168.1, or later.  Also, be sure you <a href="#msi">obtain 
+   the MSI installer</a> if you have not done so before.</p>
+
+<h3>If you are installing Apache on Windows XP with no Service Pack applied, 
+    <strong>stop</strong></h3>
+
+<p>Install the Windows XP Service Pack 2.  Refer to the
+   <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;317949"
+   >KB article 317949</a> if you need the gory details exactly why, or to
+   convince them to send you the specific fix.  Windows XP original edition
+   and the Service Pack 1 support are both beyond the end of their product
+   life cycles, and the Apache HTTP Server project is no longer addressing
+   bugs for these OS releases.</p>
+
+<h2><a name="msi">About MSI Distribution Packages</a></h2>
+
+<p>Apache HTTP Server is distributed as an MSI package.  All Windows ME, 2000, 
+   2003 and XP users have integrated MSI support as part of their Windows OS.  
+   Users of Windows NT 4.0 and 98 must download the MSI installer once,
+   if it was not already installed by another product's installation.</p>
+
+<p>If you are unsure if the Windows Installer is present, or meets the required
+   version 1.10.1029.1 or later, then run the command "msiexec" from the 
+   Start -> Run dialog box to determine if the Windows Installer is on your
+   machine.  It will report "Incorrect command line parameters", and also
+   report its version number.  You can obtain the Windows Installer v1.10
+   from following Microsoft locations:</p>
+
+<ul>
+ <li><a href="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=17344"
+     >Windows Installer v1.10 for Windows NT 4.0 from Microsoft</a></li>
+
+ <li><a href="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?ReleaseID=17343"
+     >Windows Installer v1.10 for Windows 95 and 98 from Microsoft</a></li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>Once you have downloaded and installed the MSI installer application, you
+   will not need to do so again.  You will be ready to run the Apache .msi
+   binary installer distributions above.  Because a small but significant
+   number of users have encountered problems running the Win32 installer,
+   we have provided the <a href="TROUBLESHOOTING.html">TROUBLESHOOTING</a>
+   page to help you diagnose and fix most installation problems.</p>
