    You can just use the IIS. Though it's more comfortable to install XAMPP.
    Don't forget to change the port.
    Eg.
    localhost:80 ---> IIS
    localhost:8080 ---> XAMPP (Apache)

    PHP can be run in several ways.

    If you have IIS installed, then download the PHP setup and install. Once installed, you need to web share the folder where the PHP script is residing. Use http://localhost/--foldername/script.php

    OR Install WAMPSERVER, (it is provided free to download, just google it, you will get download link)
    Place you script in c:\wamp\www\somefoldername\script.php
    start the wamp server and browse http://localhost/somefoldername/script.php

    WAMP server is a great piece of software for a development machine, I highly recommend it. Be sure to have not start up when Windows starts, you can always turn it on manually when you need it.
