Help Cooercing PHP 5.4 to run under XAMPP in Windows

I’m trying to get the PHP 5.4rc2 files to run with the latest XAMPP without much luck. Any ideas on this?

Not sure about XAMPP but i got it working fine using WAMP, i do believe however there is a specific .NET framework you need installed but i can’t remember off the top of my head what version it was.

I got it under easyPHP. It has a 5.4beta version flowing out there, and a simple file copy pulled the upgrade.
