What are you really trying to do?

Are you talking about the PHP in XAMPP that you would like to change for a stand alone PHP, or what exactly?

I want to be able to test some things in PHP 5.1.6
Is there any functionality that enables me to switch to this or that PHP?

You can download and install a version of XAMPP that contains PHP 5.1.6 but it is not possible to change the PHP version in what ever version you are using at present.

By using a different name folder for your XAMPP version that includes PHP 5.1.6 that you install then it is possible to have 2 versions of XAMPP on the one PC but only one can be started at a time.

This is the method used by many and even I use it for the 6 testing XAMPP versions I have installed on my PC on various drives and partitions.

Older versions can be found at SourceForge here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP Windows/

Does this help?
