Where X: is a mapped network drive (for example, after doing "net use X: \\192.168.1.5\SharedFolder" on the command line), then Apache does NOT work
What would be the UNC path for X:\ or \\192.168.1.5\SomeShare\ ?
i.e. my machine (the one that runs Apache) has full write access to that X: drive (or to that share, it's the same).

You machine (SYSTEM account) can't have access to this share. Maybe your user have full write access.
(also tried with forward slashes, same result)
Is there another way of getting Apache to report exactly what or why it's failing?
I assume the SYSTEM account (or whichever account is running Apache) needs access too.
But how do I go about that?

The Apache2.2 service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1).

You can't (ok that's not really true...) give the SYSTEM account such privileges. You must run Apache with a (normal user) account which have privileges. (--> edit the service properties.)
Ah ok, unfortunately that doesn't tell me much more:

There are more then one log, you can view with the windows event viewer.
I noticed the Apache events are logged not only under Applications, but also under System. But the (rather uninformative) logged error is the same in both.
The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> DocumentRoot must be a directory .
why does it think that X:\WebRoot is not a directory?

A service doesn't know anything about maped network drives from your user.
how do I get a mapped or subst'ed drive available to the SYSTEM user?
(considering that the UNC path for a network share doesn't seem to work)
