I installed 5.2.1 about two months ago.  Everything was working well.

I downloaded and installed 5.2.2, using the windows installer, and now the web server (iis5) returns the error 'The specified module could not be found.' on a simple page that worked in 5.2.1.  It only has as echo() in it.  So it seems to know that .php requires something but can't find the something.

I also removed php completely (deleted the directory too), redownloaded and reinstalled 5.2.2, and still get the same error.  Somewhere, somehow the installer is not doing something correctly.

I also tried the suggestions from the 'manual install' section of the install.txt. (adding isapi filter, adding app mapping, setting script access)

None of this helped either.

btw the application mapping was wrong. see bug 41367.

firefox gives the 'The specified module could not be found.' error

IE just gives an http 500 error.

Yes, You are right.

I'm the #41367's reporter.

I have spent a whole afternoon to test PHP5.2.2 installer under windows 2000 server sp4(iis5 + isapi).

Now my total test result of PHP5.2.2 installer is:

windows server 2003 + iis6 + isapi : Need to change the wrong application mapping to work(don't forget to restart iis to load php.ini).

windows 2000 server sp4 + iis5 + isapi : although the application mapping still wrong but change it is no use to make php work.

Windows server 2003 users see bug #41367.

Ok ... so the windows installer bites.

I got 5.2.2 installed by ignoring the windows installer and doing the manual install from the .zip file.

I think the problem may be that the installer doesn't set the permissions on d:\program files\php or the php.ini correctly.  It definitely hoses the path in the application mapping.

Not sure.  don't care any more.

Under windows 2000 the everyone has the all controll to the files so permission is not matter.

Try latest installer from snaps to see if it does the correct behavior.

See my latest test information about the latest installer. bug #41367

I'm going to get the installer re-spun for 5.2.2 to correct this.
