    I tried to install PHP on windows but had some problems

    I tried to install PHP on windows but had some problems. Now when I try and use the installer from the php website I get a dialog saying

    "there is a problem with this windows installer.
    A script required ....could not be run etc"

    any ideas on how to fix this?

    ALso after I finish the installer I get a dialog saying Php 5.2.3 ended prematurely

    Don't use the installer. Either use the binary package or one of these programs that install everything for you like XAMPP.
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Experience is something you get just after you really need it.
