Upon installing the PHP 5.3, I did not realize that my run-time version for Visual C++ was the 64bit version. I installed the 32 bit version and the problem is fixed!!! This... along with the steps from the PHP.net "Manual Install Steps" were followed exactly
as documented and PHP runs fine.

I installed the 32 bit in addition to keeping the 64 bit intact and all seems to work fine

FWIW : I had similar issues just recently. But solved it with a very simple fix. I changed the Error Pages of IIS of the website you are working with to point to /index.php instead. It looks like WordPress picks up the error when IIS redirects the error
the index.php page and then re-redirects the user to the correct install pages.

I found this article in error looking for a similar issue, getting IIS7 to report errors at all, rather than the standard '500 ISE' - Later I stumbled across a very useful snippet of information below, in regards to custom error handlers, and how to configure
Turning off IIS7 custom errors will allow error responses from your application to be sent to remote clients without being censored by the IIS7’s custom errors module.
You can do this from the IIS7 Admin tool by running “Start>Run>inetmgr.exe”, selecting your website/application/virtual directory in the left-hand tree view, clicking on the “Error Pages” icon, clicking “Edit Feature Settings” action, and then selecting
