It still isn't working.

Started out using a utility called PHP triad (Apache, PHP and MySql) to

Uninstalled this when it didn't work and tried installing with the software
supplied on disk from 'PHP and MySQL' SAMS. Tried with Apache and without.

Downloaded a variety of trouble shooting documents. Made sure that
httpd.conf file was configured as suggested, checked that msvcrt.dll and
php4ts.dll were in place, checked that all the suggested parameters in
php.ini were correct. Ran a test at command promt "php.exe text.php" which
executed correctly at the command prompt.

Changed the "Execute Permissions in IIS to "Scripts and Executables" (It was
set to scripts only). Clicked the configuration button and made sure the CGI
entry was there "php.exe %s %s" - all correct.

But when I open my pages in the browser I either get the raw php code or

So uninstall and this time I reinstalled using the easywindows installer
from PHPEveryWhere and then not even the "php.exe test.php" worked.

Just want to do the tutorials!

It is almost never true that Apache 1.3.x under Win32 can
outperform IIS - something which Apache Group accepts during
