this error code 80070002 refers to file not found. Please check the file name; e.g. if you created it with notepad it may as well be phpinfo.php.txt but you can't see the "known " extension in windows explorer.

Also check. event viewer for errors ; it may contain more information.

I now am getting internal HTTP server error.

I think it is an access violation but not sure how to remedy it. Windows is probably picky about which exe files to allow to run as cgi; maybe event viewer will tell you more. Isn't there an error code like c0000002?
