Synopsis: crypt() is ignored and reports error when tried to be used

Windows does not contain an embedded crypt() function, and
Apache cannot supply one that uses the common DES-based
algorithm.  On Windows, versions of Apache earlier than
1.3.6 can only handle plaintext (i.e., unencrypted)
passwords; 1.3.6 and later can handle passwords encrypted
using the src/support/htpasswd.exe tool.  There are two
bugs in 1.3.6: plaintext passwords no longer work, and
even encrypted passwords must be shorter than 8 bytes.
Both of these are fixed in the next release after 1.3.6.
Thanks for your submission, though, and for using Apache!
