Top Windows Downloads

Hi all,

I realised the links section of the website is generally a bit rubbish so I've decided to bulk it up a bit and also help by putting on the front end a list of applications that I can't have a PC running without them. I've come up with 10 at the moment but I want peoples emails so if you contact me and let me know of any suggestions to be added to this list.

Visual studio supporting PHP

I've recently been out there looking for edittors, and although there are some amazing opensource edittors they tend to pale against paid for options. So I have been reviewing recently for a good overalloption and came across a software which is based on visual studio but works with PHP as well JCX's VS.PHP I have been using it at work for a while now, and have found it amazing to use, and the best thing is you don't need Visual Studio to use it, there are multiple ways of using it but I would go with buying the version which is made to plugin to visual studio 2008 and then installing the Visual Studio 2008 Shell (its free) from Microsoft in order to get CSS support with the program as the standalone version does not support CSS syntax highlighting, however, if your hunting for an editor for .NET development and PHP development then this program is definately for you, a great idea for only $99. Check www.xe.com for an accurate cost in your currency.

Missing GD library and FLV files not loading (Windows 2003 server)

Just a quick note listing a few issues I've had playing around with a windows 2003 server trying to make PHP run on it. Basically I hade 5.2.3 PHP version installed and the GD library comes as default with the installation, and despite me enabling GD library within php.ini and it saying with--gdlib and in php.ini the GD lib was definately enabled with this: extension=php_gd2.dll and it still wasn't working and coming up with "undefined function imagecreatefromjpeg()" and I've been restarting IIS and everything to try and figure out this infuriating problem.
