Sure would be cool if the windows installer created a php.ini on initial installation that did not cause PHP to crash, which is always going to happen if exif and mbstring are selected since they are automatically put into the php.ini in the wrong order by the installer.

This is a request that the load order dependencies of the modules be considered in automatically generating php.ini by the installer instead of just putting them in alphabetically.

As a new user who wants exif type functionality, it took me a little while to find the doc giving the required order to fix the crash...  I initially had no idea it was even related to module loading.

This request was submitted in 2004 by someone else as documentation bug 29919.  It is not a documentation bug since the documentation gives the correct order, it is an installer enhancement request.

Thanks for PHP!

As of PHP 5.4 there are no official MSI packages anymore. The loading order issue in the default php.ini files has been resolved, and a respective comment has been added.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better. :)
