Bug Type: Reproducible crash
Operating System: Windows ME (kernel 4.9.3000)
PHP Version: 4.0.6
New Comment:

Reproduced with Windows 2000 Professional, PHP-4.0.6 and Apache 1.3.20 (running PHP as 
an Apache module).

A simple script:
echo `c:\crashtest.exe`;
If you run PHP from te commandline, the following output IS generated:
Warning: Unable to execute 'c:\crashtest.exe' in crashtest.php on line 2

Changing the backslash to \\ or / has no effect.

On Linux (tested with Debian, Potato), trying to execute a non-existant file produces 
no output, and no error... strange...

also note: using Apache 1.3.20 Win32

using `proname -option -etc` (where progname is any executable, such as PING) in PHP, 
you can run a program and parse it's output with a PHP script

on Windows 9x, when the program isn't found (either a bad link or it just plain 
doesn't exist), PHP crashes.

I can reproduce this error on Windows ME, kernel 4.9.3000 (the final release of win ME 
-- not a beta or anything goofy like that)
