My guess is that SQL team may be linking with VC9 required libraries statically and you are not. It works because you have VC9 runtime on your machine.

Subject: [PHP-WIN] Compiling PHP with MS SQL Server Driver for PHP support


Compiling using VC9 Express Edition.

I'm ending up with a php_sqlsrv.dll of 88KB

The VC9 x86 nts version supplied by MS (php_sqlsrv_53_nts_vc9.dll) is 227KB.

If it had been just a few bytes, then OK, but to be over 40% smaller
is a significant difference.

Any ideas?

As far as I can tell, it all works just fine too!
