Hi,

Just for my own reference and some other poor people out there trying to get this to work:

  1. Download XAMPP 1.7.2 from sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Windows/1.7.2/xampp-win32-1.7.2.exe/download
  2. Install
  3. Download php_xdebug-2.0.5-5.3-vc6.dll from xdebug.org/download.php
  4. Place it in C:\xampp\php\ext
  5. Edit C:\xampp\php\php.ini add:
    zend_extension = "C:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.0.5-5.3-vc6.dll"[xdebug]

    xdebug.remote_enable=on

    xdebug.remote_host=127.0.0.1

    xdebug.remote_port=9000

    xdebug.remote_handler="dbgp"

  6. Enjoy!
