now open a command prompt as an administrator (right click on cmd.exe and choose "run as administrator") and type the following commands
choose system for a system wide installation. When the program prompts you with a list, just press enter to accept the defaults.
After the download has finished a file called
PEAR_ENV.reg will be created. This file contains environment variables for PEAR. Just double click it and install the registry file. Now open the file C:\opt\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.13\php.ini and add the following
include_path = ".;C:\opt\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.13"
Don't forget to replace the path with your own installation directory. Add the same line to the file
C:\opt\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin\php.ini and restart apache. Now you can use the file
C:\opt\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.13 to install any packages. E.g
pear.bat install net_smtp

this is me
I am a day time software engineer, night time code hacker working on various web applications at the same time. An official CV is available for those that are interested. This is the place that I document/explain some of my hobby projects and research. It's mainly for reference purposes. I also use this space to keep track of my music projects. I'm currently working on WebMOO 2 which is a space themed 4X turn based strategy game for the web browser using SVG graphics and Ajax. The accompanying research is documented in Design and development of a web based 4X game.
