Is there a specific reason why you're trying to roll your own installation of PHP on Win7? I can understand wanting to build a customized installation from scratch on a production server, but I presume that this is for a development/test environment. For that purpose , I would recommend uninstalling the individual components that you have been trying to integrate and installing a pre-built stack instead.

Here are links to two different pre-built stacks for Windows that include Apache, PHP, and MySQL. Just uninstall whatever you have already tried installing, choose one of the links below, and then download and run the installer:

  1. XAMPP for Windows
  2. BitNami WampStack

In moments, you will have a working PHP development/test environment without the fuss of manually integrating the components.
