You don't need to copy ANY of the php dlls to \winnt\system32.

"php4ts.dll" runs fine from the php directory, as any dlls your application
tries to load is first searched for in the application's directory.

The extension-dlls can also stay where they are (in the "extensions"
directory), BUT you need to change a line in the "php.ini":

extension_dir = ./extensions

Maybe this should be a default value instead of

extension_dir = .

Just my suggestion anyway, especially sine the install.txt doesn't mention
