    Thanks.
    I installed xampp with Winx64. This worked as well, even with the php5.3. But I did find it to be slower.. I'm sure if you tweaked the php a bit to run locally, it may run faster.

    Uninstalled EasyPHP 5.3x and installed the 5.2 package of EasyPHP, All works seamlessly on Windows 7 x64.

    Thanks...
    Glad it worked out for you!

    Your signature is cool
    Thanks, just found that post one day, and put it in my signature, found it to be rather funny.

    For Windows, there is Wampserver. Never had problems with it before. Currently I use IIS 7. With PHP and MySQL installed manually.

    Most OSes can use XAMPP as well.

    I seem to remember some time ago a program you could install on your local machine that made this very easy, however, do not remember what it was called.

    Anyhow, any help you could offer would be much appreciated, thanks!
    Running fine here with Xampp & Windows 7 - You can download here: www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

    To get vB support on these forums you first need to be a licensed customer and register for Priority Forum Support. To do this, please go here:

    http://members.vbulletin.com/membersupport_priority.php

    ...and enter your email address in one of the boxes. You will also have to select the specific forums that you wish to have access at. You'll need to have your customer number and password to access the page. Once you've done this, please post in the appropriate support forum for your version.

    If you are having an issue on a particular site powered by vBulletin, contact the administrator of that site for support.

    If you want to mess with .NET and Silverlight. Other than that they are pretty equal. In my opinion, IIS is easier to configure with its XML configuration files and GUI. I find it beneficial to be able to control FTP, SMTP and HTTP from the same control panel as well.

    I used to use XAMPP. But awhile ago, I've installed MySQL, Apache, and PHP manually and separately, and I'm happy with it.

    I have issues with Easyphp now..
    I used to run perfect. But after upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit, Anything the deals with mysql wont work.
    HTML, PHP CGI and a few basic mysql commands will work. But some of the more complex php scripts I have get the "The Connection was Rest" page. Not sure why. Same with WAMP

    But yeah I say give it a go. Thats what I used to do.. In fact...
    I wrote up a tutorial a while back..
