After Upgrading from PHP4.2.3 to 4.3.0 the real numbers from my MSSQL 7 database return in scientific notation, and all are the same: 2.96234E-304. 
Back in my db the numbers are still the same, like 1.2 2.0 3.1 etc.

I used the standard wise installer and extracted the php_mssql.dll from the zip. This is the only extra module I use. I have the register_globals = On, mssql.allow_persistent = Off, mssql.max_persistent = 0, maximalized the textsize parameters.

After finding something similar in the bug database I downloaded a CVS zip, but didn't actually know what to do with it. So I extracted the .exe & php4ts.dll over the old ones. That didn't work. I had to do the wise installation again to get it to work again. How should I deal with a CVS zip? Could not find anything on the site about it.

Found out about CVS. Just doesn't turn up in the search.

Unfortunately, instalation of latest stable or cvs version of php didn't help me... :( It doesn't work properly...
