Very good question Mike. 
In my file, I have a cout to the stdout and
I open a file and write a couple of lines to it. The
reason I believe it is not running is that when 
the .php file is running from the cli, I see my
"cout" and the file (test.txt) that I open is created
and my lines are written to it. When I run the same
.php file from within my browser, the cout is not
displayed and the file (test.txt) is not created.

I am new to Windows, do you see something that I am 
not doing correctly?


My question is how do you know it's not running?  If
it really is a "hello
world" application, where do you want the output to
go? To the browser?
That's pretty involved.  Try making it write to a file
and see if it
contains any output after execution.
