When I run php5.exe as a CGI from a web-server running as ordinal program (not a service) - php5 works perfect. If I start the same web-server as NT service and run CGI (php5.exe) with the same parameters again - php5.exe did not produce any output at all, just finished.

php4.exe (any version) works OK in this web-server both in service mode and ordinal app mode.

Reproduce code:

This web-server is acWEB ( It can run as NT service or as user-level application (when started as acWEB.exe, not from services control panel and not "net start acWEB"). PHP4 (and PHP3 too) works under acWEB in both modes - service and non-service. When I change association of *.php files from PHP4.exe to PHP5.exe in the acWEB config - PHP5 works right only in non-service mode; but when I start acWEB as a NT service - PHP5.exe did not produce any output to the acWEB CGI pipe.
