Recommendation: Use Apache Web Server, not PWS
In PHP Windows binaries as .EXE you got only compiled DLLs and EXE files
In PHP Windows zip file you got All Libraries and EXE files (recommend)
In Full version (source) you got all source code of apache. That variant for advanced user who understand what is C++ programming.
