i wanted to install PEAR on my Windows machine as a prelude to installing symfony. i'd installed PEAR before on Windows, no biee. but when i tried using the batch file to install PEAR today, i was greeted with a list of 12 options after deciding to install a system-wide copy. the last option specified
C:\ as the PHP executable path. every time i changed it to
C:\, i couldn't continue to install PEAR. i had to leave it as-is, install PEAR, then edit the
pear.ini file to specify a correct path. ideas, anyone?
