PHP on Windows with Encryption

P: n/a
Greetings,

Does anyone know whether there is a version of PHP out there for
Windows that has the encryption libraries built in (Mcrypt or any
other)?

If not, then how can I use encrypt and decrypt functions in my app?

crypt() and md5() work for encrypting, but there is no decrypt for
them.

Any help appreciated.

mcrypt is easy to "install" on a windows box.
I'm running php 4.3.10 on XP
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.mcrypt.php

just unremark the mcrypt extension line in php.ini
and download libmcrypt.dll and put that in your windows dir.
(see 2nd sentence under Requirements on the mcrypt docs page)

voila!
