Thanks for your help.  The 4.0.7-dev-20010816 version of ImageTTFText(...) does work about 50% of the time, the rest I get annoying messages from Windows about errors with Apache.exe, followed by 'connection reset' messages in the browser.  I added the 'ImageDestroy(...)' method to my code, but it still crashes every other time I view the image.

I'm sure you'll have it fixed soon enough.  And it all seems to work fine on linux . . .

This is fixed in CVS. You can download a dev build
from if you want it now, or
wait for next release of PHP.

I've placed my script on my server here:

I'm using the binary zip package (4.0.6) from

I've tried several options to try and get fonts to load via ImageTTF* functions, but to no avail.  I tried "C:\winnt\fonts\...", "C:\\winnt\\fonts\\...", "C:/winnt/fonts/...";  I even tried copying the 'fonts' dir under my DocumentRoot, and tried "fonts/...", "/fonts/...", "./fonts/..." and even "http://localhost/fonts/...".  None of these options worked.

In the final version of my script, I even used 'file_exists' to test the font file (which exists), and it still is unable to load.  Is it possible that the gd library was compiled wrong on the windows binary?
