I'm a windows user and would to use PHP 5.6 with the PHP Driver 11.1.

The Problem is, the currently avaible php driver only work with PHP 5.4

Module compiled with module API=20100525

    IIRC source code is shipped along the driver, so you can recompile it by yourself.

      I tried to compile PHP with the Advantage Database extension with the following steps:

      • I follow this introduction on
      • I add the the PHP DEV-Tools to PATH Variable
      • I copy the directory
        c:\Program Files (x86)\Advantage 11.10\PHP\
      • I start a simple Compile Process to test compiling from the source path with the following commands:
        • buildconf
        • configure --help show me the parameter which I need:
          --with-advantage Advantage support
        • configure --disable-all --enable-cli --with-advantage
          gives the following output:
        • nmake

      the Compiling failed with the following error:

      have anyone an idea how I can resolve this problem?

    ADS 11.1 supports only PHP 5.3 and 5.4. PHP 5.5 and 5.6 is available only for ADS 12.
