Tried your solution but must be doing something wrong.  Still get the Winnt error message
during load and the follow up No Apache 2 service found.  How did you get around this?

    Had the same problem.  Apparently, the folder/file containing WinNT services was removed
in Vista, since it is a total rewrite and does not use NT code.  Have not heard of a solution
to the problem.  This may have to be reported as a "bug" in the Apache load program.
    Below I am giving solution to my own post, having finally figured it out after several
hours (days!):

    The culprit in Vista is UAC (User Account Control). Microsoft went overboard with its
security obssession in providing the most secure environment, which results in serious compatibility
issues, compromising well known and liked apps like Apache webserver and God knows what else!
  Turn off UAC in Vista and reinstall Apache from Add/Remove programs (Select Change and then
Repair). Now Apache will be installed as a service. You will still not be able to launch the
Apache monitor. Remove the shortcut from Start menu so you do not get that annoying error
message everytime you boot up.

    Let me now if you find out anything more.  Tks.

      Hello Everyone,

                 I recently upgraded to Windows Vista from Win XP. Apache server 2.2.4 with
mod_jk/1.2.20 was working fine. Then after the upgrade, I could not open the Apache monitor.

      I uninstalled and reinstalled ver 2.2.4, and during installation, I get the error msg:
Cannot open WinNT services.

      Really appreciate if anyone can help.
