I know this bug with 4.0.6 has already been reported - the exec, system functions all fail with the error 'cannot fork', the solution was to use one of the release candidates of PHP 4.1.0, which DOES fix the issue, on the other hand, these releases do not support functions (for example crypt) that are absolutely needed, therefore making the solution unusable.
I have been using 4.1.0RC4, and have since gone back to 4.0.6

What functions are not supported by RC4? only crypt?

Status = feedback

Crypt was the first one I came across, and since my site fundamentally requires the use of this function, I saw no sense in continuing further with 4.1.0RC4, and replaced it with 4.0.6

I changed the summary, and set the status to critical. It seems that crypt was not included in this build.
Setting the status to Critical will make it clear that the one doing the Windows builds does not forget to include it.

That's great. I hope it gets sorted soon, we had to close down a whole section of our website because we couldn't use the exec / system functions.

Is the crypt not available in the Windows binary for RC4 
just because whoever built the, forgot to enable it? If 
so, can someone make a crypt enabled binary available for

Crypt is enabled in the final release (4.1.0), so let's close this bug.
