Recently my Windows 7 computer crashed and I had to reload all my apps. Got the latest XAMPP v1.8.1 and now my mssql functions don't work. I understand that php_mssql.dll is no longer supported and sqlsrv is the new extension for accessing SQL Server but I have a lot of code running that still needs to be supported.
My question is this, can I run 1.8.1 using BOTH MS SQL versions? This way I can maintain my current code while converting to the new extension.
I have added the php_mssql.dll/php_pdo_mssql.dll to the ext directory and uncommented them out of the php.ini file. I got "php_body_write error in php5ts.dll file" and a "no ntwdblib.dll" error. I added a ntwdblib.dll file but that did not help.
I have found a bunch of posts on this issue but none that say they successfully got this to work. I appreciate any help you may be able to provide.
