Thanks, FWIW, : - ) the poll was just something I did for the heck of it.
As for installing them individually, thats exactly what I was orginally proposing with in our orginaization, but some of the developers are dead set on using the XAMPP install. I think unless I can find an install that uses our exact versions we will install things piece meal.
Thank you for your feedback on this. Being a Java developer, Designer and architect PHP is a new environment for me.
