    XAMPP - works on a windows box - dead easy to install and manage and can update htdocs folder from any where on the network like a windows share.

    Go

    apache friends - xampp

    Download the windows version of that, it installs and configures PHP and MYSQL. on the XIBO site the instuctinos for installing it are using XAMPP so its a doddle

    Could someone do me a favour and put a copy of the installing server guide up?

    Believe it or not, I use Net Meeting [LOL]. The reason I chose Net Meeting is it's integration with our Active Directory accounts. So the person in the office who edits the PowerPoint simply logs into the remote computer hooked up to the TV's around the school from the server room with Net Meeting, and logs in using her existing network credentials which are passed via SSL thanks to Net Meeting supporting that. Yes, it can be a pain to set up since getting the machine to start up with desktop sharing support can be a lot of reboots and trial and error since the option is always grayed out until you do something magic [which even I totally forget what it was, a lot of tinkering back and forth], and the colour quality when you connect is like 16 bit or something terrible, but it works since all she needs to do is open PowerPoint, hit show presentation, and exit. She edits the PowerPoint document locally.
