Thanks John. I know there is a way to retrieve a short path name from a
DOS prompt window, just couldn't record what 
it shall be. There was not any other path starting with Apache. Anyway,
I already switched back to the old installation 
method, which I have used since the 3.2.x version.

As a programmer, I, like you somewhat, used to be very  paranoid when I
come to software installation. I could easily 
get very  frustrated on installation problems..
