I just tried it on PHP 5.2.6, with sample files that are included in the original download - it works fine.

The only thing I did is renamed example file "dhtmlgoodies-tree.html" to "dhtmlgoodies-tree.php" (only because my php is configured to parse only *.php files) and opened it up through localhost...

Thanks!

I don't really understand what you want me to upload, because the stuff from your last link just works, no errors of any kind... All I did is unpacked it to the local server...

Try setting up a new/clean web server, for example: WAMP (http://www.wampserver.com/en).

Thanks for the help!

The problem was that the script uses short tags in a few places:
<? ?>

My server requires full tags:
<?php ?>
