```>  I chose to install ZDE with PHP5 support on Windows XP.
> ZDE bundles a PHP 5 CGI binary stored in C:\Program
Files\Zend\bin\php5
> The integrated debugger uses this binary to parse and execute
scripts,
> I was using the 'local debugger', not the 'server debugger'.

> You can debug a file with the following contents to see which
extensions

> The output of that file lists a whole bunch of extensions, but I
could

(There

>
> The php.ini file is also stored in the same location
> The php.ini file contains only three lines:
> zend_extension_ts=C:\Program Files\Zend\lib\php5\ZendDebuggerLocal.dll
> zend_debugger.allow_hosts=127.0.0.1/32
> session.save_path=C:\Program Files\Zend\tmp
>
> I then tried to debug a file with a call to mysql_connect() but that
