I am trying to install PHP on my IIS and it is all going well until I get to here where I'm supposed to be adding a Module Mapping.
The instructions are to enter Request path: *.php Module: FastCGIModule Executable: C;\php\php-cgi.exe Name: FastCGI
and IIS won't accept that. Gives the error 'not native... specify at least one enabled native module..'
Can you provide any help with that? Something I should have configured first? Or a module name I can use?

Scroll to the very bottom.

That's absolutely brilliant. Thanks a lot.
Ran phpinfo() to prove it was working and happened to see Virtual Directory Support was disabled in PHP. I'd imagine it needs enabling if I'm using Virtual Directories in my IIS site, which I am. Don't happen to know about that?
Very technical explanation that I don't understand but the gist of it seems to be that one should not enable it, that it is not easy to anyway and that the 'virtual directories' that talks about are something a tad different anyway...
I've just left the question and my own answer here in case in the future someone else follows this thread and has the same query..
