We recently setup a new server, Windows Server 2003 with IIS6.  We've now installed PHP 5 but our developer is having trouble deploying his application to it.  php_info.php responds ok and the site can conect to MySQL no problem, but there seems to be a problem using the ./ delimiter for include file paths.  This is what he said:

"I've managed to find the source of the error.  It was where I've included files using the delimeter ./ to mark the current directory (I think this is an issue in asp applications, not had this problem before).  I've removed all occurences of it in the front end of the site and it's working fine now, however I've used it quite a lot throughout the backend I've developed.  Is there a way to globally enable having paths start with ./ on the server?  That would be preferable rather than having to go through the entire cms and pick out the ./ delimeters..."

Any help, much appreciated.
