It may be that short_open_tag is off, but it doesn't seem so. Try using full tags
in your file to double-check anyway. If that still doesn't parse the file, then your installation is botched. I would reinstall and don't forget to include the libraries that you are attempting to use if they aren't installed on your system yet.
