Ok let me explain what happens.

I upgraded to 5.2.8 on windows, and suddenly pidgin (program) stopped working, kept crashing, finally I got a debug build and found the error.

My PHP directory IS in the PATH, so aspell-15.dll was being referenced by pidgin for whatever reason.

Windows Version 5.1 Build 2600 Service Pack 3

C:\Program Files\Pidgin\pidgin.exe caused a Privileged Instruction at location 00f9cef6 in module C:\Program Files\Apache Group\php\aspell-15.dll.

Until this dll's been added I'm not had a problem with PHP being in the PATH, in fact I prefer it that way. For now since I don't use the spelling features I deleted the dll, and php seems fine.

Maybe this isn't a "bug" but IMO a dll from php should not interfere with other programs. Maybe the solution is to not have PHP in the PATH and if that's the recommend way of doing it then fine, consider this closed.

Or perhaps aspell dll can be put within the ext directory?

Not a php issue.

Mixing binaries built using various compilers and CRT cannot work. Be sure to have separate path for pidgin and php. Or simply keep the pidgin dlls inside the pidgin install, where it will find them.
