Note that all those . "" are uneeded.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in
C:\Apache2\htdocs\mysql_test.php on line 9/*

The mysql extension is not enabled.
Did you took the steps I mention about changing php.ini?
Do you get any warning about "not being able to load mysql extension"?

Does adding dl('php_mysql.dll'); to the top of the script help?
(you may have to run in in console for dl() to work)
