I haven't actually *done* this, however you might find this useful:

I believe the trick is to install each instance of Apache as its own service
with a unique service name.  In fact, you may even be able to work with
simply ONE apache installation separate config files/directories for each
[from the page:]  apache -i -n "service name" -f "\my server\conf\my.conf"
