I don't know what ERROR code 1 means.  What happens if you comment  
out the PHP directives in httpd.conf and try again?  Does the PHP  
module have the right ownership and access priviliges?

It seems to me that Vista enforces practices that were available, and  
would have been a good idea under XP anyway.  I'm thinking of running  
as an unprivileged user as a matter of course (which nobody does  
under XP because it's too much of a pain, and you CAN run as admin  
all the time), and stricter enforcement of who can execute what where  
in which way.
