Solution: Win 2003-IIS6 & PHP 5.2 - for - Error "The specified procedure could not be found"

I was able to find the simple solution to the issue IIS6 & PHP 5.2. It seems like I was focusing too much on the online help solutions, posted by others rather than to, try to figure out how to solve it best.

The documents avalaible online are, mostly suggesting the older php4isapi.dll or php5isapi.dll rather than to utilize WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\fcgiext.dll file

To solve the issue regarding "The specified procedure could not be found." error all you have to do is in
IIS6 >> Websites (select) "Properties"
Properties >> "Home" tab and then "Configuration" button and Tab "Mappings".

Under mappings update the .php extension dll to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\fcgiext.dll"

This should solve the issue with the new settings, it's very painful to read over so many early php5 versions suggestions which does not talk about this, only few handful of recent blogs talk about the update and those are not the first results on search engines at least not at till when i was doing research till today.

Hope it helps you out, in installing php 5.2 on iis6 on windows 2003.
Good luck.
