Alias Not Working (Sometimes)

Took me a while, but I finally got aliases to work by switching EasyPHP from running Apache and MySQL as services to not. In other words, I can't get aliases to work AT ALL if they're running as services OR if they're not, but ONLY if I switch between both.

I've had two aliases running just fine. I've added three more and all of them return a "404 Object Not Found." I've restarted Apache, restarted EasyPHP, checked folder permissions, run additional test-aliases on different folders, but nothing.

Running Windows 8.1.

- The config in apache_alias.conf is identical from one alias to the next except the folder name (auto-added via Admin panel).
- The working and non-working folders are in the same parent directory.
- All folders have the same permissions.
- I've restarted Apache.
- I've stopped Apache, waited a bit, and started it.
- I've restarted EasyPHP.
- I've tried accessing from both and localhost.
- I've tried with and without index files.

The ONLY WAY I can get aliases to work AT ALL is if I configure EasyPHP to run Apache and MySQL as services, wait, quit EasyPHP, restart EasyPHP, reconfigure to NOT run as services, then start the servers. And that is THE ONLY way I can figure out how to make it work.
