I am running PHP 4.0.5 in Windows 2000 with IIS 5 and have discovered that the backtick operator and exec() command do not return results.

The following code outputs nothing, (but the command does run):

  $output = `ping localhost -n 5`;
  echo $output;

Is there a workaround for this on Intel platforms?

I tried this with latest CVS build from and it works as expected. 

So please wait for PHP 4.0.6 to be release in which this
should be fixed.
