For Windows installations, the install.txt features an explication on which dll's should be copied where, depending on your installation.

This paragraph from install.txt is highly confusing as it talks about 'dlls' but there are 4 groups.
There is the php4ts.dll, the SAPI dll's the /dll/* dll's and the extension dll's.
Don't use "the dll's" in one text which mixes them all.
I would be nice if this text would be rephrased.

There's also a contradiction in the same text warning/avoiding and later recommending using SAPI dll's.

"You need to ensure that the dlls which php uses can be found. The precise dlls involved depend on which web server you use and whether you want to run php as a cgi or as a server module. php4ts.dll is always used. If you are   using a server module (e.g. isapi or apache) then you will need the relevent dll from the sapi folder. If you are using any php extension dlls then you will need those as well. To make sure that the dlls can be found, you can   either copy them to the system directory (e.g. winnnt/system32 or windows/system) or you can make sure that they live in the same directory as the main php executable or dll your web server will use (e.g. php.exe,  php4apache.dll)."
