Can you give me more direction on how to install phpxmlrpc on Windows?
The instructions for XML-RPC web services for PHP say to:
"extract file xmlrpc-2.2.tar.gz and take the file xmlrpc.inc from lib directory place the xmlrpc.inc in the php library folder restart the apache/iis server"
I'm using IIS Express for a proof of concept, and I can't find a library folder. Here's my structure:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\PHP\v5.3\dev
C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\PHP\v5.3\ext
C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\PHP\v5.3\extras
No other sub-folders. I tried connecting and got nothing after checking for the cookie. The xmlrcp_client is failing probably because the xmlrpc.inc file is not where it should be.

As ugly as it is, I dropped the xmlrpc.inc file in my project folder, and now it works. I suspect there's a proper "global" spot I should put it. However all the places in IIS-Express I tried don't seem to work so I suspect it should be under WebMatrix, not IIS - in any case it works now, so I'm done with this challenge. (I had toyed with the idea of compiling it to a DLL, but that seems like overkill for a proof-of-concept!)
