M$ Windows NT4 Service Pack 3
Binary release from apache.org
Installed 1.3.1 binary from apache.org, installed as NT service.

Service fails to start "Error 05: Access denied"
I'm assuming that this exists in all NT machines trying to run 1.3.1
Installer is broken. Default install path contains whitespace (C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache")
but the value of registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Apache\ImagePath
(path to apache.exe) is not double-quoted. Fix this.

Adding another pair of quotes in the registry by hand is the workaround. To accomplish:

Start -> Run -> regedit
(drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Apache\ImagePath)
select ImagePath key, right-click -> Modify
add quotes around string in text box
click Close
exit regedit
It's M$, so reboot.
