Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

Please try the snapshot then.

Hi, have tried snapshot. Still same. date('u') on PHP 4.3 still works (on another server) on IIS6 (so Windows Server 2003).
Thanks for looking in to this, Alan

Bah, forget my last post.
As timelib_sll is defined as __int64, we should use printf(%I64d) on windows.
 [2005-09-04 20:04 UTC]
We (should) use PHP's internal printing routines, this has nothing to do with the platform. It works fine here.
 [2005-09-04 22:10 UTC]
OK, now I see you are using PHP's sprintf implementation.
The problem is there. It only accepts  %lld if SIZEOF_LONG_LONG is true. However, config.w32.h defines it as 0, so %lld is disabled on windows.

Derick brakes, Derick fixes. :)

Don't assign things to me which I can't test. This is a bug in the port to Windows.
 [2005-09-05 08:58 UTC]
Derick, you got to be kidding? I know you have a windows machine to test with at work, so TEST it..

I couldn't test this patch because I haven't installed MSVC yet, but I think it should work.
 [2005-09-15 20:55 UTC]
Finally I've installed Microsoft Visual Studio .Net!
I've tested the patch and it works fine.
