You also have to tell your Internet server, in this case IIS, what 
extensions to run PHP with.  You will have to goto IIS Manager, goto the 
"Configuration" for your site, and add the phtml and php extensions, 
making sure they point to MS4W's php-cgi.exe.  (I don't have my IIS 
virtual machine running at the moment, but I believe those are the steps 

If you require direct support you can always contact me directly.
