I'm running Apache 2.2.21 on a Win 2K8 server and tried VC9 (PHP 5.3.8) version 
of PHP... it almost worked (PHP couldn't connect to MySQL and had troubles 
interpreting PHP code).
After carefully reading the PHP download page, I removed my PHP install (except 
for the php.ini) and installed VC6 (PHP 5.2.17).
This is where my troubles starts!

If I uncomment this in httpd.conf
#PHPIniDir "C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\"
#LoadModule php5_module "C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\php5apache2_2.dll"

Apache can't start and I get the following in the system event log (crappy 
translation by myself):

Failing application name: httpd.exe, version :, Timestamp : 0x4e6a3015
Failing Module: php5ts.dll, version :, Timestamp : 0x4d25fb49


I feel like I'm trapped!
What the heck is that php5ts.dll doing?
I know there can be problems with some crappy DLLs like lib_mycrypt.dll, but 
nothing that critical!
I don't understand WHY it crashes...

I tried creating a file named dummy.php containing


When I try opening it through command-line or via PHP-win.exe
PHP crashes immediately.

Same failing module as above...
