I installed mysql - no probs
I installed php - no probs. Instead of doing the problematic copy of php dlls to %systemroot% - which leads to duplicate files and a more difficult upgrade path - I instead went for the simpler method of specifying the php.ini file in the registry and placing d:\php (my php folder) in my system path.
I added ;d:\php to the end of my path. Because mysql has a dll "libmysql.dll", and php ALSO has a dll "libmysql.dll", if mysql is on the path prior to php, php apps will attempt to use the mysql dll instead of its own - which causes access violations as they are in fact different DLLs
Hope some others find this useful
