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

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'

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:
