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.
