PHP.ini doesnt load at startup when IIS 6 is configured with a virtual directory and the doc_root parameter is set.

Reproduce code:
Tested basic php.ini files with 3 lines:
doc_root = "D:\WWWroot"
extension_dir = "D:\php5\ext"
cgi.force_redirect = 0

Nothing from the file is loaded!

When commentting out doc_root, the whole file is loaded;
tested the same with the complete php.ini-recommended,
gave the same result!

Expected result:
Should have loaded other parameters at least.

Note: It is assumed that this issue relates to having and virtual directory for the PHP code files under IIS6

Actual result:
Resolution found with:
- commentting out doc_root
- to resolve limited directory entry use:
  open_basedir = D:\WWWroot

Where did you put it? What is the valie of "php.ini" in phpinfo()?
 [2006-10-19 07:53 UTC] pholm at resmc dot com
Initially I used all the default values and locations;
Put php.ini in both the D:\php folder and c:\Windows;
Just to check if it had to do anything with the location it was loaded from;
Later I added the PHPRC environment variable to point to D:\php and used only that location;
Believe me.... I have spent 5 days and nites testing all possible combinations, before filling this error report!!!
And indeed... I used (when php was loaded) the phpinfo() to verify the loaded location as well!

Please follow the directions in the last comment here:

And I have to ask it again (since you didn't reply):
What is the valie of "php.ini" in phpinfo()?
 [2006-10-19 08:17 UTC] pholm at resmc dot com
Indeed forgot to mention that in the current phpinfo() the value of the php.ini location is: D:\php5\php.ini;
Just to emphasise: all variables under phpinfo() are loaded just as I have configured them in the php.ini file;
All setup instructions have been followed to the letter, included about a dozen other installation instructions (sometimes conflicting) which I have found on the internet,
and also from 3 books that I bought on how to install php (being: PHP5 from Wiley Publishing,  Howto PHP&MySQL from McGrawHill and PHP5 easy steps from Computer Step)
But.. the very moment that I uncomment and use doc_root with any valid value, then php will not load anything from php.ini.
