My developers are needing PHP on IIS.  They have asked me to provide a server with PHP and IIS on a 32bit operating system.  The issue is that we are proceeding with 64bit platforms only

So in response I researched the ability to install PHP 5.3 on IIS7 with Server 2008 64bit enabling 32bit applications to run. I followed the following URL: http://www.iishacks.com/2011/02/14/how-to-install-php-5-3-fastcgi-on-windows-2008-iis-7/

After installing PHP, we are getting the following error:
 Error when browsing info.php
Windows Events give us this  -
Activation context generation failed for "C:\PHP\php-cgi.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

Not sure what we are missing?  Should I just go back to a 32bit OS?  We have a server with 32Gb RAM, I am trying not to go backwards in OS.  

Thanks ahead of your help!

Nice!  The issue was that I installed MS 2008 C++ Runtime x64.  I should have installed MS 2008 C++ Runtime x86.
