Please try the new Beta 3 for Windows.
The problem: My apache 2.2.8 compilation with VC 8.0 gives often a "C Runtime Error". I do not really know why. But my Apache 2.2.8 compilation with Visual C 7.1 runs stable (okay, i need some times for this idea). Against this stable Apache, i build the PHP-Apache2-moduls for PHP 4/5 with VC 8, because the PHP 5 Source makes linking-trouble with my VC 7.1 compiler. All this seems a little bit confused ... but at last in Beta 3, my testings were all okay.
Why PHP 4.4.8 RC2? Because a completly building of PHP 4 fails on my system. So i compile the most wanted modules seperat against the lib of the current PHP 4 Binary. But the last PHP 4 Binary from php.net i know was 4.4.8 rc2 dev. That is the reason.
