Hi guys, hope you are all well.
Guys i have a problem in using the php echo short syntax on 1 of 2 setups I have.
The syntax Im trying to use is:

<?= $variablename ?>
instead of:
<?php echo $variablename ?>

It is working fine on my LINUX Server, but not on my WINDOZE box (PHP/MySQL with WAMP 5)
On my WINDOZE box I have to use <?php echo blah blah ?>

Is there a php setting or something in php.ini that I have to tweak on my $M box?

Any help greatly appreciated.

that's probably the "short_open_tags" setting:
