Need both ASP and PHP, too! UGH, Feel I'm out $$, now.
I am having the same issue. Wasted 2 days researching the problem only to realize that it was not a user error, but built that way purposely. Now I'm out the $$ I spent to upgrade and still can't perform the work for the client. I'm now overdue on the client's due date with no foreseen solution.
I certainly need to use old ASP capable extensions for many clients who aren't going to upgrade their sites just because I can't code in the old language anymore.
Can the old ASP capable extensions be rereleased with a new extension name and altered internals, or new PHP only extensions released with new extension names and new internals, to avoid conflicts?
