I created the .htpasswd and placed it on the path shown by the directive

<Directory "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.4\htdocs">
AuthName "Authentication Required"
AuthType Basic
AuthuserFile "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.4\.htpasswd"
Require valid-user
</Directory>

place the directive in the conf folder and the httpd file
and does not work
stop the server and it does not let me start

Isn't there something in Apache docs about slashes?

:: shuffling papers ::
When entering a file path on non-Unix platforms, care should be taken to make sure that only forward slashes are used even though the platform may allow the use of back slashes. In general it is a good idea to always use forward slashes throughout the configuration files.
I'm not entirely sure about the C: either.

phranque, if the server refuses to start, would there even be an error log file?

while I can verify that I have seen error log entries in such cases I cannot verify that there will be an error log entry for all cases of server startup failure.
