Because of the known "OCX-Control missing" problem I did a manual configuration on Windows 2000 Server (IIS5). PHP scripts run (e.g. phpinfo()), but own function don't have access to PHP Variables, there seem to be no variable definitions at all.
Calling a script via http://localhost/test.php?a=1 does not result in a variable "a" within the script.

That makes sense if you haven't turned the register_globals directive On in php.ini.

No, I've already changed both "register_globals" and "register_argc_argv" to "On".

Now, e.g. $OS is defined. However, Variables passed via URL still remaine undefined. 

(I am using the same PHP.INI File than on an XP-Installation, where PHP&IIS5 work. Are there any other modifications performed by the OCX which I am still missing ?)

In PHP 4.2.0, the 'register_globals' setting default changed to
be off. See for more info.
We are sorry about the inconvenience, but this change was a necessary
part of our efforts to make PHP scripting more secure and portable.
