Subject Re: Loadable Module debugging Apache 2.2.17 Windows.

If you start Apache with the "GUI" (Apache monitor), Apache is started 
as Windows service.
--> a Windows service only nows the system $PATH (it's having it's own 
environment) and thus Apache / modules can only find DLLs in these dirs.

If you start Apache as console app with httpd.exe, it's using your user 
environment. In this case system $path and user $path are merged and 
Apache / modules can find DLLs in all those dirs.
