Resolution

; use mklink to create a directory
C:\Program Files (x86)>MKLINK
Creates a symbolic link.

MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target

        /D      Creates a directory symbolic link.  Default is a file
                symbolic link.
        /H      Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.
        /J      Creates a Directory Junction.
        Link    specifies the new symbolic link name.
        Target  specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link
                refers to.

MKLINK c:\admin\Apache "c:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Sof
tware Foundation" /d
symbolic link created for c:\admin\Apache <<===>> c:\Program Files (x86)\Apache
Software Foundation

Edit C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apa
che2.2/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

and change this
SSLSessionCache "shmcb:C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/logs/ssl_scache(512000)"
to this
SSLSessionCache "shmcb:C:/admin/Apache/Apache2.2/logs/ssl_scache(512000)"
