When Apache is configured within the Windows Services UI to start automatically (or Automatically Delayed), Apache 2.4.39 fails to start automatically when Windows is restarted (via shutdown /r).

However, the Services UI is able to start 2.4.39 manually. Also, Windows does automatically start Apache 2.4.4 successfully after restart.

When Windows fails to start Apache automatically, the Apache error log does not contain any corresponding entries (even with Loglevel debug), and the Event Viewer contains the generic "Incorrect function" error.

Note: "apache -k install" seems to configure the Apache service startup to depend on two other services: "Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock" and "TCP/IP Protocol Driver" - removing these dependencies seems to allow Windows to start 2.4.39 automatically, but we're not sure whether this is a valid solution.

(FYI, we are using Windows Server 2012 R2 on a VM.)

You can define that in the service properties

See https://i.stack.imgur.com/4XGev.jpg
Set the "Restaert Service after" to one minute.

Nothing new in either log. However, zero failures occurred in subsequent testing - we're cautiously optimistic that configuring all "failure" options as "Restart the Service" "after 1 minutes" on the Recovery tab of the service Properties in the Services UI seems to be our solution (without removing the two default dependencies). Thanks very much for your help.
