Run php on command line

So I have 1 machine that can execute php files on the command line just fine.

I'm trying to set it up on another machine so I installed phpED.  But when I'm at a command prompt it doesn't know what to do when I type php.  I'm pretty sure I need to tell it through an Environment variable where php.exe is, but I looked at the machine that IS working and there is no Environment variable set for php.

So, I'm confused.

It could be setup in Folder Options for the PHP file-type.  I don't know what phpED is.

Is the location of php.exe in the PATH variable?

echo %path%

I understand you do not use phpED on the PC which opens .php files from a command prompt just fine.
Why don't you open .php files on the PC that has phpED the same way?

I totally missed it.  I didn't realize there are a whole bunch of programs on PATH and I didn't know that.  Sure enough, when I copied the value over to Notepad, there it was.

Sorry to waste your time.
