Error Activating mod_ssl on non_ssl Apache Windows installation "The operating system cannot run %1"

  apache, mod-ssl, windows

I have to take care of an old Webserver.
It runs Apache Win32 2.2.25 "NON_SSL-Version" on a Win-Server 2008R2.
Now that theres no mod_ssl.so I copied one of an old xampp ZIP-File into the modules folder.
Uncommented the two lines:

LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
Include conf/extra/httpd-default.conf

Unfortunately httpd.exe -t says the following:

httpd.exe: Syntax error on line 122 of C:/Server/Apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load C:/Server/Apache/modules/mod_ssl.so into server: The operating system cannot run %1.

Can anybody tell me what this means?
I found this but it didn`t help me either:
Cannot load modules/mod_ssl.so into server

I installed OpenSSL Version 3.0.0
Copied the content of bin to Apache/bin, restarted Apache and it didn`t change anything.
I´m a bit lost here because it´s my first time to set up SSL on an Apache. :-/

Any help iss apprechiated.
