Interesting tweet from PHP dev:
#php 5.5, say good bye to #Windows XP and WindowsServer 2003 support. About time. See

https://twitter.com/PierreJoye/status/269371542947893248

I replied:
When build with VC10 or VC9 it should run. When build with VC 2012 it does not run on XP 2003.

Plans to build with 2012 ?

Q: What's changed to 5.5 src tree so it can't run on 5.xx NT?
A: Almost nothing. Realisation for 2 functions (introduced in 5.3) inet_pton and inet_ntop was switched from pure C workaround (Pierre's code in win32/inet.c 69 lines with idents and empty lines to beautify code) to winsock 2 dll (support for those functions was introduced in Vista and 2008 R1)

Q: Is it really bugs them so much that they decided to drop a whole bunch of peoples that still use 2003 servers and/or XP as test/devel platform?
A: Dunno. Anyway the source code is still there and all that 2003 guys need to do is to rebuild php with changed minver #defines requierements. (check on alpha src's - all the code here and ready for 2003 support.)

What the PHP People are saying is that PHP 5.5 for Windows will be complete x64 because the new servers (from 2008 R2) are only coming in x64, they also told me that they are testing VC10 and VC11 when it comes to programming language, to me I think VC10 will be best, I have tested Windows Server 2012 and it's just as bad as Windows 8 and for Windows Administrators it will be more difficult to go from 2008 R2 to 2012, besides, VC10 offers support for:

vista
xp
2003
2008
win7

In both x86 and x64, while VC11 won't have support for xp and 2003, if I'm not mistaken, I haven't tried it yet.

No support doesn't mean that it doesn't run Wink Only that there is no support for it.

Well... Does anybody use winXX as a production server anyway? Never get such an idea. I'm using win32.php for developing purposes as pre-beta of future *nix code. And for win32 console shell scripts. While putting up developer edition of 2K8 server it's only a matter of a time, I just refuse to say farewell to my fine-tuned and long-lived XP. (Installed in Dec 2005 and still kicking)...
Ok. Gonna catch last win32 working source and build it by myself. huh.

Does this run on Windows 2003:
https://phpdev.toolsforresearch.com/php-5.6.4-nts-Win32-VC11-x64-2k3.zip
I cannot test it, because I do not have a (64bits) Windows 2003 server.
