Michael, First, try running php.exe from the command line. When you do that, it will probably give you a message about not being able to find certain dll's it needs. I believe most, if not all, of the dlls you need are in your PHP directory under a dll directory. The best thing to do is to add this path (PHP_DIRECTOR\dlls\) to the System path. You may have to restart to get this new entry to be recognized. Once you do that, run php.exe on the command line again and see if it still gives you errors.
