Apache hangs with PHP5/Win2003/IIS6 when activating extension

P: n/a
We have installed PHP 5.0.1 on a Windows 2003 Server with IIS6 in ISAPI
mode. The processing of .php files works fine with our basis version of the
php.ini file. But, as soon as we edit the php.ini file to outcomment the
line "extension=php_sybase_ct.dll" (or "extension=php_pdf.dll") and restart
the IIS6, the web site is not able to work with .php files properly, instead
the web server seems to hang with any .php file.

Does anybody have any idea why this happens? Thanks.

First of all: If you use IIS as stated, it's definetly not Apache that
hangs ;)
Then: I have to admit, that I am absolutely unexperienced regarding IIS,
but if PHP seems to hang after activating *any* extension which is not
built in, I would check, whether it loads any extensions, using the command
line interface. (For example: php.exe -f phpinfo.php).
If my suspicion is correct, PHP will throw out errors during *starting up*,
stating its unability to load the extensions.
In this case check, whether the extension path is set correctly.
