When running PHP via php-cgi.exe using CGI/FastCGI, "Per Directory Values" are not read from the windows registry.

Reproduce code:
Simply run PHP in CGI/FastCGI mode using php-cgi.exe and use regmon to monitor the accessed registry keys.

Already configured "Per Directory Values" working correctly via php5isapi.dll are not being loaded and are - as a result - not applied in CGI/FastCGI-mode.
They are applied fine using php5isapi.dll/ISAPI-mode.

Expected result:
The relevant values should be loaded from the registry and should be applied as described here:

Actual result:
The relevant registry keys are not loaded from the registry and the settings configured there are not being applied.

Just guessing but does the user you run PHP as have permissions to access registry..?

Unfortunately not. Both ISAPI-Worker Process and CGI/FastCGI are running under the same account (Network Service). Regmon shows no tries of php-cgi.exe to access the relevant registry key; there are no "access denied" events logged as it would be the case if the permissions wouldn't have been correctly configured.

With "unfortunately not" I meant that the user has permissions to access the registry, in case someone didn't understood me correctly. Still the same issue here...could you conform that the php-cgi.exe should load and process the settings stored in the registry as the ISAPI module does?

It is definitely not a permissions issue; I ran the 
php.exe and the php-cgi.exe interactively under an 
administrative account, using the filename of a test 
php-file as parameter.

- test.php, just containing a call to phpinfo()
- php.ini, open_basedir only set to temp and session directory
- correctly set "per directory values"-registry key, open_basedir set to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test for the "test"-folder

php.exe -f C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\test.php

Result: Displays correct phpinfo-output, the additional setting for open_basedir is reflected here correctly.

php-cgi.exe -f C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\test.php

Result: No input file specified.

Configure open_basedir value for the test-folder directly via php.ini, then again:

php-cgi.exe -f C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\test.php

Result: Displays correct phpinfo-output, the additional setting for open_basedir is reflected here correctly.

Interesting: the local value of open_basedir, configured via registry, is displayed in the phpinfo-output!
