PHP Extension not found problem

P: n/a
Hi

I installed PHP 4.3.4 on my laptop which is running XP Pro and IIS.

I made sure that extension_dir entry in php.ini point to the appropriate
directory and uncomment the extension = php_mssql.dll line.

When PHP is trying to execute the scipt, I always get a message saying

Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library
'C:\PHP434\Extensions\php_mssql.dll' - The specified module could not be
found.
What may cause that error when directory exist and file is there?

Many thanks!

Don't you want to install Apache?

Have you read the very first paragraph of
http://www.php.net/mssql ?

The extension requires the MS SQL Client Tools to be
installed on the system where PHP is installed.

I suspect you do not have the Client Tools installed.
