On a clean Windows Millenium machine, IIS is not installed. Attempting to install PHP 4.0.5 Windows Installer with all defaults results in the following error during php.ini copy. It should fail gracefully.

 Component 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered a file is missing or invalid.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.

I installed Win2k with SP2 and installed the latest download and received an error about a missing OCX.

Copying mscomctl.ocx from another Win2k machine to c:\winnt\system32 resolved the install error message.

It would be nice if the PHP install at least indicated that mscomctl.ocx was what it was looking for!  The installer is a bit sloppy in this regard.
