Can't get XDEBUG to work on XAMPP

Hi, I can't seem to get xdebug to work on XAMPP (for windows). I've commented out the zend optimizer (i know xdebug and zend optimizer aren't the best of friends). Here's my php.ini.

Check the error-logs of the apache in your xampp distribution xampp/apache/logs

AFAIK the config should be on windows also
zend_extension= ...
and not

hernst42,,, thanks for the reply,, I changed the extension to zend_extension= instead of .._ts and it still doesn't seem to be loading when i check php_info(). I checked the apache logs and didn't find anything that pertained to xdebug. Any other thoughts? Thanks!
ok needs to be zend_extension_ts. Installed the dll fro and load perfect in my xampp installation. So what do you don't get to work in xamp??
