Which executable are you using for your PHP, php.exe or php-cgi.exe? If you are not using the latter, please do so.

I only have the php.exe executable. I'm using PHP 4.2.3. Did I install the wrong version?
 [2002-12-08 18:16 UTC]
4.2.3 was not version you've indicated in your report, please try the latest stable snapshot of PHP, which is based on the upcomming 4.3.0.
You can download it from
Once you download and install it and make 100% certain no old libraries from 4.2.3 remain on your system. When configuring your CGI php handler use php-cgi.exe and not php.exe.
