When trying to set a cookie in PHP under Apache2 / winXP, the cookie is not set.

Reproduce code:
setcookie('test','some text', time()+360);
echo 'cookie set<br>';
if (isset($_COOKIE['test']))
echo 'cookie retrieved';
echo 'cookie failed';

Expected result:
The out put should read 'cookie retrieved' if the cookie was set

Actual result:
the output I get is the failed message

Do you mean it never get set even if you reload the page?
 [2007-07-13 21:27 UTC] alex__rider at hotmail dot com
The cookie is never set even with page reloads, my browser is set to allow cookies, and there is no cookie set when I look at set cookies. I have tried reinstalling both php and apache with no luck.

Check the headers PHP sends for that page.(with e.g. Firebug)

These are the headers that firebug gives me:

How exactly have you setup PHP in apache? Are there some special modules enabled in Apache? I can't reproduce this at all..
 [2007-07-14 11:08 UTC] alex__rider at hotmail dot com
I have installed apache2 from the windows installer on the site, and installed php5 from the windows installer, added the relevant bits into the httpd.conf file

PHPIniDir "K:\apps\PHP\"
LoadModule php5_module "K:\apps\PHP\\php5apache2_2.dll"

ScriptAlias /php/ "K:/Apps/PHP"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php5
Action application/x-httpd-php "K:/Apps/PHP/php.exe"

the only extra module I have installed is php mysql
 [2007-07-14 11:09 UTC]
Try remove that last "Action" entry from httpd.conf..
 [2007-07-14 11:32 UTC] alex__rider at hotmail dot com
I removed the last 'action' form the httpd.conf file and restarted apache, php works but I still get the same problem, the cookie is still not set.
 [2007-07-14 20:52 UTC]
You have done some sort of installation error somewhere.
I tried myself on completely clean machine and installed both Apache and PHP using their installers and just used the default options for everything. (selected the Apache 2.2 module in PHP installer!)

Setting cookies works just fine here. 

Please ask further support questions elsewhere.

Note: I didn't have to edit any configuration file at all to get Apache+PHP running..
