I am running into a situation where when I try to set up wordpress it only asks me what to do with install.php .  
It seems to me that php isn't running.  Am i right?
It appears to be running and installed and all that but wordpress doesn't work.
Thanks

Use the Microsoft web installer. Works like a charm.

Sometimes after I do this the MySQL needs uninstalled and the current version installed. Them I add the workbench, make the db and all is well

Now I'm getting further with your install utility.  the one i used looked just like it but wasn't correct evidently.  
I am now however running into install issues with mysql 5.1.  I'm going to try and find out how to update that or uninstall/reinstall. to newest version.

Here is what I get when I try to open wordpress:
HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error
The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.Most likely causes:
•IIS received the request; however, an internal error occurred during the processing of the request. The root cause of this error depends on which module handles the request and what was happening in the worker process when this error occurred.
•IIS was not able to access the web.config file for the Web site or application. This can occur if the NTFS permissions are set incorrectly.
•IIS was not able to process configuration for the Web site or application.
•The authenticated user does not have permission to use this DLL.
•The request is mapped to a managed handler but the .NET Extensibility Feature is not installed.
 Things you can try:
•Ensure that the NTFS permissions for the web.config file are correct and allow access to the Web server's machine account.
•Check the event logs to see if any additional information was logged.
•Verify the permissions for the DLL.
•Install the .NET Extensibility feature if the request is mapped to a managed handler.
•Check the failed request tracing logs for additional information about this error. For more information, click here.
 Detailed Error Information:
Module    FastCgiModule
Notification    ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler    PHP53_via_FastCGI
Error Code    0x80070003
Requested URL    http://localhost:12474/index.php
Physical Path    C:\Users\josh\Documents\My Web Sites\wordpress2\index.php
Logon Method    Anonymous
Logon User    Anonymous
Request Tracing Directory    C:\Users\josh\Documents\IISExpress\TraceLogFiles\WORDPRESS2
 More Information:
This error means that there was a problem while processing the request. The request was received by the Web server, but during processing a fatal error occurred, causing the 500 error.

Can't run websites out of your user folder. Put them in inetpub

It turns out it was running correctly after I used the utility suggested above, but I was getting the error when I would try and access http://blablabla.com/wordpress from the server in which it is installed it would give me those errors. If I called it from outside the box it opened correctly.
