I have no clue but check that you have exactly the same configuration 
and the same directory tree. Check the arguments of the LoadModule 
directive and check that MyFilter.dll is placed where LoadModule expects 
it. Try replacing the relative paths with absolute paths. The relative 
paths are relative to the ServerRoot, so check that the ServerRoot 
directive has the same arguments. Check that the ServerRoot or other 
configuration directives are not overwritten by some command-line 
arguments in the apache-lauching script, if any.
