I am running php 4.0.6 on iis5 under win2k/sp2

any attempt to use system() or exec() results in a:

Warning: Unable to fork [whatever the command was] in blahblah.php

For example simple file operations or even a basic "mkdir foo" with all the permissions appropriately set.

Problem reported to exist under win2k/apache as well. 

alleged to have been fixed under 4.0.6 but does not seem to be the case. :)

Already fixed in CVS. Will be in 4.1.0 when it's out.
Tested with 4.0.7RC3 on Win2K.

In the meantime, you can use 4.0.7RC3 from
