Thanks for the report.  This looks challenging.

OS 126 is an error from an operating system call.  The text
"The specified module could not be found." comes from the OS,
not from Apache or APR.  So that looks like your best clue:
where is your (or .dll)?, and do you need
to modify some system path to help find it?  Google finds
lots of reports of that error in other apps.

The "not compatible with APR" is a check I put in there, and it
means apr_dbd or the driver is returning an error that's not
handled by mod_dbd: when I originally wrote that code, every
error that apr_dbd could return there was handled.
Unfortunately that doesn't help with diagnosing it.
