Hello Joerg,

(note that the proper email list for MS4W questions can be found at 

I dug up an old win98 laptop and did some testing with ms4w v1.0.  I 
also ran into problems stopping the service.  I then did some digging 
and from what I've read Apache's use as a 'service' is extremely 
experimental in Windows 95/98 
  I therefore have no easy solution for you.  To get around this I would 
make a shortcut to apache.exe on my desktop and manually run it each 
time...sorry I don't have an easier solution.  Maybe some other win98 
user can help us.
