You're going to have to be a lot more specific than "is not running."
... how you're trying to run it (as a service is the preferred way)
... how you installed the service
... the settings in httpd.conf, especially the "User" and "Group"
settings (which should probably be 'Guest' and <commented out>,
... what happens when you try to run it
... any messages in /var/log/apache.log and/or /var/log/apache/error_log
and/or the windows event log
... the ownership and permissions on the various log, pid, and config
files (this is typically the reason the service won't start)

I don't mean to sound harsh but your urgency is irrelevent. It's
generally considered bad etiquette to ask such a thing from a project
that is offered for free and is supported by volunteers in their spare

You're on your own with that.
