Problem with php4ts.dll and PHP CLI installation with IIS on Windows 2008 Server

Last Modified: 2013-12-13
Have installed PHP 5.2.1 using the microsoft web platform installer, using IIS on a windows 2008 r2 server.

While all is working well with the web server, I am unable to use the CLI, i.e. at the command prompt if I type php.exe -v for example, it throws the following error:

The program can't start because php4ts.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.

I've tried downloading the php4ts.dll file and putting it in the PHP directory.  This is obviously having an effect, as the error changes, but it still throws an error:

The procedure entry point _zend_list_delete could not be located in the dynamic link library php4ts.dll.

Any advice gratefully received...
