From manual page:
Bullet 3 should read:

As of PHP 5.2.0, the location of the php.ini file can be set for different versions of PHP. The following registry keys are examined in order: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\PHP\x.y.z], [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\PHP\x.y] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\PHP\x], where x, y and z mean the PHP major, minor and release versions. If there is a value for IniFilePath in any of these keys, the first one found will be used as the location of the php.ini (Windows only).
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\PHP], value of IniFilePath (Windows only). 

Keys for 32bit binaries are stored under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\
Keys for 64bit binaries are stored under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\

Test script:
<?php echo phpinfo(1);

Expected result:
Loaded Configuration File shows the file that is loaded.

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
