I downloaded PHP 4.0.6 for Win32, full version (ZIP
package, binary distribution), and installed it on PWS 4.0
for ISAPI invocation.

Everything works fine except for GD library support: when
I include the library in PHP.INI, and then an attempt is
made to execute *any* PHP script under PWS (even <? phpinfo(); ?>), the server process shuts down silently. No error
log, no message box, no GPF fault display, not even a Blue 
Screen of Death. The server process (INETINFO.EXE) just
disappears from the list of active processes, and any 
further request for HTML pages of any kind (not only PHP)
fails with a "Server not found" error. 

I tried to execute PHP from the command line in order to
check the problem, and the resulting HTML output shows
a complaint about GD support not enabled on the build.
Please note that this is a different message from a
"function not recognized error" (I tried with and without
GD invocation just to be sure). 

Could you please suggest what might be wrong with PHP or
PWS? Or how to make PHP accept GD as a library (I thought
dynamic DLLs dispensed with the need to recompile PHP).

PHP 4.0.6 uses GD 2.0 which is still beta. That might be the cause of this. Can you try the PHP 4.1.0 when it's out (it will be released in a few days)?

No feedback. Closing.

Also note that GD is _not_ thread safe, and may not work in threaded servers, like PWS and IIS.
