It sounds like the user who originally filed the stackoverflow question was eventually able to get working with PHP-VC9. So, I will trust Rodolfo's opinion that requests for VC6 support are not reasonable and should be answered by telling them to upgrade to at least apache/PHP/zorba built with VC9.
As Cezar said, we do need to ensure that this solution works, and preferably have a clear documented process for downloading and installing binary installers for all parts of the system. I am downgrading the bug and changing the title accordingly, but leaving it open and marked for 2.7 for the time being. One thing I don't understand: What is "VC9"? Is it the same thing (or compatible with the same thing) that we build our current Zorba installers with? Or do we need to provide a "VC9" version of Zorba as well in order for this to work seamlessly for PHP people? ** Changed in: zorba Importance: High => Medium ** Summary changed: - Need Zorba/VC6 installer for PHP users + Ensure Windows PHP/Apache/Zorba story works -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zorba Coders, which is the registrant for Zorba. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1026192 Title: Ensure Windows PHP/Apache/Zorba story works Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor: Confirmed Bug description: As discussed here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10990912/php-cant-initialize-zorba- apis-module If a Zorba binary compiled with VC6 is the only way to use PHP/Zorba on Windows, then we should provide such an installer.
