    There are full setup instructions for running PHP on IIS7 in my book
    "The Essential Guide to Dreamweaver CS3 with CSS, Ajax, and PHP" (follow
    the link in my sig for more details). Generally speaking, it's not
    recommended to use IIS for PHP, but I did test it and set it up
    successfully when writing the book.

    Basic things to bear in mind:

    * Disable User Access Control (UAC) in Vista before running the Windows
    PHP installer.
    * The Windows PHP installer offers two options for IIS: as an ISAPI
    module and CGI. Only the CGI option works.
    * Once everything is set up, you can turn UAC back on.

    Better than what? If you mean better than IIS6, that might possibly be
    true. In general, though, PHP works best with Apache, which is easily
    installed in Vista (UAC must be turned off during installation).

    > Do you have any idea what's going on here???

    It sounds as though you have corrupted IIS7.

    FWIW I'm running PHP under the ASP.NET framework on Vista using
    http://www.php-compiler.net

    I suggest you start with 3 then work your way up ;)

    1. http://httpd.apache.org/

    2. Uninstall IIS, Re Install IIS

    3.

    This is the domain name that's usually assigned by the DHCP server, in most
    end-user setups the router functions as a DHCP server

    Since you will be the server's administrator, this should lead to you

    To install it as a service on port 80, IIS should not be running any sites
    on the same port

    Try opening a command-prompt and entering the following command

    In case you might want to have multiple accounts on your computer it would
    make more sense to run is as a system service

    Install what you need, what isn't there can't be abused

    If you want you CAN run PHP under IIS either by installing the PHP
    interpreter or the PHP compiler for .NET I talked about earlier, it was a
    pretty painless process for me , off course your IIS configuration has to be
    correct no less than your APACHE configuration has to be
