Running on WindowsNT 4.0 service pack 3 on Intel, Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0.
I installed my server in \program files\internet applications\apache.
When I attempted to start the server with:
apache -s -f /Program Files/Internet Applications/Apache/Conf/httpd.conf

I recieved the same error message endlessly:
fopen: unable to open file
Unable to open config file: Progra

When I changed the config file directive to /progra~1/intern~1/apache/conf/httpd.conf
everything worked.

I then ran apache -i /progra~1/intern~1/apache/conf/httpd.conf. Apparently the -f 
parameter is not passed to the service initialization, so the service did not
know where to look for the config files and would not start.

I remedied all this by installing in the default location... but it would be nice to
be able to install under Program Files.
