ok, winXP pro.. i installed the PHP binaries and IIS. configured IIS as recommended from PHP install.txt. i can view the php files, but i cannot run the install script?

what step did i miss? is not included in the install.txt?
i tried both ways: the php.exe and php4isapi.dll, no success. i get a 404 when i run the install.php

this is definately a problem with the way you have directories setup, and apache should run alot faster than IIS on Windows are you using Apache 1 or the Apache 2 beta, i've found that Apache 2 is much faster on windows than Apache 1.

Also IIS is full of security holes.

i placed a index.php file on the root folder, with the phpinfo() on it. when i call http://localhost it brings the file up.

i will try apache 2. thanks alot for the tips.
