Memcached not loading in PHP, in XAMPP (Windows 7)

P: 1
I'm trying to get Memcached (note the 'd' at the end) working in XAMPP in Windows 7. I followed these instructions without any errors, until I got to the final step where you actually run a test PHP file.

I had no problem installing memcached, and starting it. I checked the Windows processes and see that memcached.exe *32 is running. In the "Services" tab I see "memcached Server" running on PID 1524.

From the command line I ran "netstat -aon" and see:
Local address:
Foreign Address:
PID: 1524

Port 11211 is the expected port, so that looks good.

I have memcached installed in my php.ini file:
memcache.allow_failover = 1
memcache.chunk_size =8192
memcache.default_port = 11211

I double checked the extension_dir path:
extension_dir = "C:\xampp\php\ext"
and that's where I have my DLL file:

However in phpinfo() I don't see a section for memcache. My co-worker followed the same instructions and it works on his computer, and his phpinfo() shows a "mamcache" section. We're both using XAMPP/Windows 7.

Any ideas?
