The path in SCRIPT_FILENAME is FastCGI server property. You may run nginx
on Unix host and FastCGI on Windows. And in this case SCRIPT_FILENAME
should have Windows-style path.

If PHP is Cygwin application, then you should use Cygwin-compatible path.
If PHP is native Win32 application, then you should use x:\.. style path.
