Call to undefined function curl_init() Windows Server 2008

Hi

I cannot get Curl to work in PHP 5.2.14 on Windows Server 2008 64 bit.

I have FastCGI non threadsafe setup and working.

The extension is enabled, the extension_dir is set correctly and I have tried copying msvcr70, ssleay32 and libeay32 to both c:\php and c:\windows\system32.

Is Curl compatible with 64bit Windows?

I have tried php -m in command and I get the error zlib.dll is missing. Could this have something to do with it?

What can I do to get CURL working?

Thanks

Hi

Fixed. It turned out there is a bug in 5.2.14 and when you replace the php_curl.dll from version 5.12.13 it works:

Curl has to be compiled into PHP.  I do not know if it works with 64bit, but you could ask Haxx.

Any idea how I install the curl?

Ive downloaded the Win64 exe but get the error 'The application has failed to start becauses its side by side configuration is incorrect'
