[MS4W-Users] mod_fcgid.so on Win 2008

I have a new 64-bit Win 2008 server, migrating from Win 2003 32-bit.

I copied everything over to the new server.  Everything works fine except FastCGI.

If I include mod_fcgid.so as a loaded module in httpd.conf, I get this error when starting Apache:

httpd: Syntax error on line 129 of C:/ms4w_306/Apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load C:/ms4w_306/Apache/modules/mod_fcgid.so into server: The specified module could not be found.

And yet it is right there in C:/ms4w_306/Apache/modules:

C:\ms4w_306\Apache\modules>dir *fcgid.*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 3495-008C

Directory of C:\ms4w_306\Apache\modules

04/19/2012  09:33 AM            57,856 mod_fcgid.so
               1 File(s)         57,856 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  78,668,070,912 bytes free

Is this some 64-bit thing I somehow need to take care of?  My WMS will all work fine if I run them through 'regular' CGI, but when I switch on FCGI they break and of course I get this error message.
