    I have Windows Server 2008 Server Core. I want to configure this server to host php websites using IIS 7.

    I installed and configured IIS7 to run php using the steps in this website:


    Now I’m facing a problem that when I request my php website I would get  this error.

    Server Error

    500 - Internal server error.

    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

    I check the even log and I found these details too:

    Activation context generation failed for "C:\php\php-cgi.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

    I search about this error and I found a solution for it but which is to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86). I installed but still I’m getting same error.

    Please help me to solve this problem and let me know if you want to know more info about my issue.
