# Php is not recognized as an internal or external command (windows 7)

command linePHPxampp

I added php to the PATH environment var. Showing here my last three entries in the path input:

C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin;C:\xampp\php\


Somehow when I run php -v in the cmd I still get the not recognized as an internal or external command error.

Any ideas on how should I fix this?

• It works now. The problem was that extra slash at the end (in the PATH environment variable).

I tried with:

C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin;C:\xampp\php\


but it didn't work, then with

C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin; C:\xampp\php

but it didn't work also (notice the extra space before 'C:..').

Eventually,

C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin;C:\xampp\php


did the trick.
