apache 2.4 and php 5.5 on windows local machine.

First time using mod_rewrite. I have read everything I can find. I can't get this to work. I have made setting changes in httpd.conf as I have read others have done. Nothing has worked. I am not getting any sign of life out of this. Can someone help me please. Thanks.

http://localhost/myfolder/index.php
http://localhost/myfolder/index.php?p=register

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^register/?$  index.php?p=register [NC,L]
</IfModule>

I am expecting this:
http://localhost/myfolder/register

did you enable the module?

a2enmod rewrite from the command line

That might be linux only though...

also, check that you may have to change the AllowOverride variable from "none" to "all"

Thanks for your response.
Your first suggestion. I do not know how to do. By command line I guess you mean cmd.exe.
I tried everything in your second post. I saw no change in behavior. Still don't work.

I am using apache 2.4 not 2.2. Maybe that is the problem. Maybe I should install an older version. I don't know if an older version will work with php 5.5 though.

My directory looks like this:

apache24 folder
      htdocs folder
            mysite folder
                  includes folder
                  modules folder
                  .htaccess
                  index.php

I solved it myself.

Turns out it was working all along. What I discovered was that the link I was using to test the web pages was:

<a>href="index.php?p=register"</a>    // link to page
http://localhost/mysite/index.php?p=register   // made address bar look like this.

<a>href="register"</a>    // new link to page
http://localhost/mysite/register    // made address bar look the way I want it to.

I did not know the links have to change.
