Experts,

I am attempting to run a php script from the command line using the following switch;

c:\php\>php.exe -q e:\scripts\hello.php

A windows error message is display as follows;

"The application failed to start because php5ts.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem"

And within the command prompt the following error is displayed;

Warning, Unable to load dynamic link library <>  c:\php\extensions\php_mysql.dll - the specified module could not be found"

PHP works fine through web on this box, and mysql runs fine.

Please help!

try adding c:\php to your system path, and then open a new cmd.exe window and try again

You might have moved your PHP script intepreter (php5ts.dll) to your webserver's PATH. This means that if you have installed Apache, you might have moved the file to the Apache bin directory as part of the installation process.

php5ts.dll is for PHP 5.x.  Is it possible you have multiple versions of PHP installed, and that this is giving you a conflict?

php5ts.dll belongs to php5, as suggested by rob263 you may hav a conflict of different versions of php.
