Usually means that the process which Apache is running under
(may well be LocalSystem) doesn't know about or doesn't have
access to p:/tools etc. Assuming that P: is a network drive,
try using its UNC (\\server\share\tools etc.) but even there
I suspect you may have security issues. One way or the other,
you would need to give the Apache service enough security
access to that share/directory for it to do its job.
