From: Magnus Anderson on

This problem was an issue with the Windows Vista UAC functionality.
It created a php.ini file in my
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\PHP folder.

This is what UAC are supposed to do and on a personal machine, not a server,
this is expected when running with UAC. I just never realized PHP was
running as my user untill now.

For anyone getting an error like this when no changes that are made in the
PHP.ini file on Vista, check if you have UAC on (you probebly do) and edit
the file in your VirtualStore.
