Hi I have installed PHP on my IIS 7 server, but I am unable to get it work (error HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error  C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\php-cgi.exe - The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly). Does anyone have the same problem ?

This is a very general error and could be caused by many things. Often, it refers to PHP not being installed correctly - I would recommend try to reinstall PHP.

I have reinstalled it at least 10 times :(

Have you installed the same package 10 times?
If yes, try a different package.

Have you made any changes to php.ini or it's dlls?
If yes, reinstall again without the changes.

Are you trying only a simple php script (like below)?
If not, try with a simple script.
<?php print "hello world"; ?>

I have installed another package and configured php.ini with other configuration and it works. Thanks
