Open your command line by going to Run -> then type 'cmd' and hit enter. It'll bring up the terminal.

First, that image is WAY too small for even me with my great eye-sight, to read. Second, if you are getting that error, I would say that the php.exe program is not installed. You need to check that it exists.

Also, next time, please post the actual error(s) and the command line that you used.

If you are running windowsXP, then it does support tab-complete on the command line. This is where you would type: d:\Prog and then hit the tab key. You would then see that "Program Files" is enclosed in double quotes. This is the way you have to execute a program that has directories in its path that have spaces in them. If you put the php.exe program in say c:\test\php.exe you wouldn't have needed the double quotes.

Ok, Windows command line lesson done.

I installed this object onto my Windows 2003 Server and I cannot run the script from an ASP. No error is generated on the screen or in the event log. I think this has something to do with IIS not being able to access cmd.exe from IIS or maybe with COM permissions? Not sure though....
