Hello guy,

When you opened the command prompt, you need to first get to the

You must now change to the directory where apache was installed. If you
did install in Program Files, then you must do the following

cd\program files\apache\apache2

You should now see

It is at this point that you key in your execute command - basically you
type  apache -k install

You should then be okay....

Good luck
