^Release 2.6 has a few niggles with windows servers which have been fixed in HEAD^

++yellow:THIS IS WORK IN PROGRESS - Having identified a tar substitute, there is still some work to make it functional in Windows++

__Recommended PHP Extensions Installation on Windows__

*zlib and gd extensions are normally available in the PHP package
*((ImageMagick|ImageMagick or MagickWand Installation))
*((LibertyMime FLV Plugin|ffmpeg php extension configuration))

__Recommended PEAR Extensions Installation on Windows__

PHP is installed from the ZIP file, and the PECL zip is also loaded into PHP5_x_x/ext so all are available.
I'm using /Network/ as my base for all the network services, so C:/Network/PHP5_2_5 has the PHP installation.
Open a command prompt ( Start->Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt )
...>cd \Network\PHP5_2_5
...>pear install Auth
...>pear install Text_Wiki
...>pear install Text_Diff
...>pear install Image_Graphviz
...>pear channel-discover htmlpurifier.org
...>pear install hp/HTMPPurifier
...>pear install HTTP
...>pear install HTTP_Download

There were a couple of 'errors' while running this and I had to add
...>pear channel-update pear.php.net
After running the Auth install.

The main problem will ALL of this is that I do not have network access from any of the secure machines, so it has to be copied - on-line loading is not an option! The installer provides a link to the current local copy of the pear files which is currently [http://www.bitweaver.org/downloads/file/11619|Pear File Archive]

__Recommended Executables installation notes__

*Archive decompressors as command line version available e.g. (add those you want your users to use)
**tar There are a few windows binaries of tar, but [http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libarchive.htm|bsdtar] actually processes things the same as tar, so can be used in the same way as the Linux version.
**bzip2 and gzip are handled automatically by bsdtar
**Unzip from [http://www.info-zip.org/|http://www.info-zip.org/] ([ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/unix/archiving/info-zip/MSDOS/unz552x3.exe|Direct Download Link])
**Winrar from [http://www.winrar-rog.com/|http://www.winrar-rog.com/] ([http://www.rarlab.com/rar/unrarw32.exe|Direct Download Link])
**ffmpeg ( see link above - configured with PHP extension )

#Put the contents of all your decompressor packages into a folder on the webserver, e.g. "c:\webserver\tools\archiving". Make sure e.g. unzip and unrar are in the same folder (different ones work as well but this makes it easier).
#If you have unzip.exe and unzip32.exe in the archiving package, delete unzip.exe and rename unzip32.exe to unzip.exe.
#Go to "Start-Settings-System ))Settings-System-Advanced-Environment(( ))Variables-System(( Variables" look for "PATH" and edit it. Add the folder from above "c:\webserver\tools\archiving" (without quotes) after a semicolon ";" to the existing paths. Your "PATH" variable should now look like this (or similar): "c:\programme\imagemagick-6.3.1-q8;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\Webserver\tools\archiving".
