I should have offered an out-of-tree example, see the instructions in;

and the mod_ftp.dsp project file that follows those instructions at

A much more complicated example is found in

If you grab that source tarball, this module (VC 6 only!!!) actually builds
against the .NET CLR using COM+, so it draws in far more complicated pieces
to build a C++ embedded Apache module.  (It also builds .NET assemblies
written in VC++ 6.0 .NET that then speak to the Apache module - as I said,
very complex :-)
