I just tested with PHP 74. And it works (Windows 10/64)
I created a tutorial and updated the wiki: ... WithXDebug

Extending almost the same question:
What do I need to install on a Win10 machine to be able to use Codelite for Javascript and PHP programming?
- any stand alone browser (not to mention the cranky stock Edge)
- any stand alone server with PHP enabled (toghether with Xdebug)?

in order to debug PHP code, you will need:
WebServer (Apache 2.4 or something similar)
Xdebug extension *loaded*
Any browser will do (I personally am using firefox, but chrome will do as well)
