Hi all,

Just to close this thread in case someone encounters the same problem as me.

The issue is solved by doing the following:
1) uninstall IIS
2) type the following in the command prompt to enable 32 bit extensions:
cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1
3) reinstall IIS

So sorry, this isn't even a PHP problem. My apologise for posting to the wrong mailing list!

Thank you to all who helped! :o)

Best regards,
Hwee Hwee

Hi Chris,

Have you tried installing them? Are you getting an error? Nobody's going to be able to help without that information.

They will run in 32bit mode, but they should work fine (32 bit binaries work on a 64 bit processor, they don't work the other way around).

The situation is such that my colleague is now in my customer's place in another country and he is trying to do the installation but he called to say he keeps failing... he didn't give me any information on the error but ask me to check if there's any things he needs to look out for when installing PHP 4.3.4 on a 64-bit Windows Server machine.

I understand that it's not very easy to help me when I can't give you the exact error. I'm sorry because I myself can't get that information. His native language is not English and thus he can't google effectively to find the information he needs.

I googled for this issue and found that maybe I can type the following in my command prompt to enable my 32 bit extensions: cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1

But, nope, that didn't solve the problem too.

If there's anything that may help, please kindly share with me! Thank you so much in advance! :o)

The -installs or -internals list would be able to help better I think.
