You can use pear for example with the XAMPP-Shell (Button in your XAMPP control panel v3 beta).
Type in "pear version" and you should get the installed versionnumber.

c:\php\ is not the correct path, so no wonder why that failed.
But to give you a better support we need information aout what you have done exactly to get this error.
Do you have used the XAMPP-Shell? What do you have typed in?
The more information we get the better we can help.

XAMPP and it's components don't get on to well if you install to C:\Program Files (x 86\xampp

My next question is do you have another php installation on your PC?
With Apache and MySQL running go to http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php and look for the item:
Loaded configuration file
It should show C:\xampp\php\php.ini
Let me know if that is correct.
I want to make sure that you are using the correct php.ini file as there may be others on your PC after install those other servers.

Now using the xampp_shell can you see the list of installed packages and their versions by typing pear list at the command prompt?
If so are there any that you feel need updating and if so which ones?
I just test pear channel-update pear.php.net and I had an update succeed with no errors using a clean 7zip installation.
So we need to see why you are having problems that at this point in time I can't understand.
How do you feel about uninstalling the installer version you now use and then downloading and using the 7zip version?
