GD + FreeType support on windows
...anybody got experience?

 1:49 pm on Jan 9, 2004 (gmt 0)

I want to get PHP running with GD capability that allows me to use true type fonts, preferably to generate GIFs (the US patent has expired, but GIF support isn't due back until mid-2004 due to global patents).

Has anybody got experience of running this combination on a windows box (using apache).

I've read on various sites about installing on unix, and recompiling both PHP and apache... this all sounds pretty tricky.

Can anyone give me any tips?

I have, almost never worked on windows servers but have you looked at this page, there might be something in here that might point you in the right direction.

PHP Installation on Windows systems [ca.php.net]
or maybe
PHP Image Functions [ca.php.net]
