Hi, I have windows 7 Premium and IIS 7.
I'm working on a php page and if i just open the index.php from my FireFox browser, it doesn't seem to work.  Do I need to install PHP on my pc?  In IIS I put files under inetput/wwwroot.  Where do I put the file for PHP?  Thank you.
 Thanks.

You would be better off installing php for it to work properly. Your files are stored in the correct location, however you have to enable php in IIS for it to work.

Here's a good tutorial for you: http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2006/09/19/How-to-install-PHP-on-IIS7-_2800_RC1_2900_.aspx
