Well, that's going to be part of it, but it's never going to work if you open 
it via Explorer. If you do that, apache won't be involved whether it's running 
or not. This will only work if you have IE (or other browser) open and put 
http://localhost/your-webpage.html into the browser's address bar. Further, 
both the webpage and PHP file need to be in your document-root. Look in your 
apache config file for that).
