I'm trying to install wordpress on an IIS webserver.  I have MySQL setup with a database and the wordpress configuration file configured.  Heres the error message I get when trying to run the install.php script:

Error in my_thread_global_end(): 3 threads didn't exit PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\ext\php_exif.dll' - The specified module could not be found. in Unknown on line 0 PHP Warning: Module 'mysql' already loaded in Unknown on line 0 PHP Warning: Module 'mysqli' already loaded in Unknown on line 0 PHP Warning: Module 'mbstring' already loaded in Unknown on line 0

I've checked the php_exif.dll to ensure it was there.  The other two modules it refers to are also there.

Any help would be much appreciated.  Points will be awarded accordingly.

Thanks,

I'm no pro at this stuff but have been playing around setting up moodle.  Maybe part of the problem - do you have the php_exif.dll file in your extension folder?  Also, is it uncommented in php.ini?

The "already loaded" parts, I didn't see those errors, but you could try:
From:  http://kb.helpdeskpilot.com/knowledgebase.php?act=art&article_id=77
Summary - It seems like you are trying to load the mysql module twice in your extensions.ini.
Take a look at /etc/php.ini and /etc/php/extensions.ini. You may have duplicate module entries.
Incase, you are on Windows, please take a look at your Windows/php.ini for duplicate extension entries.

Hope that helps.

Sorry - didn't read far enough to see that you'd already checked for that file  :/

You proposed the right solution and your last comment is confusing for me as I think its negating what you proposed in the first comment i.e

Summary - It seems like you are trying to load the mysql module twice in your extensions.ini.
Take a look at /etc/php.ini and /etc/php/extensions.ini. You may have duplicate module entries.
Incase, you are on Windows, please take a look at your Windows/php.ini for duplicate extension entries.

yeah its correct as subl1m1nal asks here
"... line 0 PHP Warning: Module 'mbstring' already loaded in Unknown on line 0"

Sorry for the confusion - my last post meant that I noticed too late that he had already checked for the presence of the file.  I guess I didn't explain that very well, and made it sound like he didn't need to look for duplicate entries in the ini files.   Like I said - I'm no pro in this stuff.  Just starting out :)
