How do I install cURL on Windows Server 2008?

My web server runs on Windows Server 2008 with PHP 5.2.11 and Apache 2.2.13.  I need to install cURL and tried the following:

1.       Enable cURL by uncommenting the line extension=php_curl.dll in php.ini
2.       Copy the following libraries to the directory windows/system32
ssleay32.dll
libeay32.dll
3.       Copy php_curl.dll from the /ext directory to windows/sytem32 directory
4.       I also copied the above mentioned libraries into the php directory for a good measure

Unfortunately, it didn't seem to work and I'm not sure what else I need to do.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

You have to edit php.ini to set extension_dir to point to where /ext directory of PHP located, then restart Apache.
Both ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll can be put in /bin of Apache also.
If you put them in system32, may be you need to unblock them (right click and select unblock, and this is on Win7m I'm not sure it might be neccessary on Win Server 2008)

Thanks for the response.  I verified that extension_dir is set to c:/php/ext, which is correct path, and I also copied ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll into c:/Apache2.2/bin, and then restarted Apache.  Unfortunately, however, it didn't seem to work.

I tried the following and now cURL is installed successfully.

1.       Enable cURL by uncommenting the line extension=php_curl.dll in php.ini
2.       Copy the following libraries to the directory SysWOW64 as the machine is 64-bit.
               ssleay32.dll
               libeay32.dll
3.      Reboot the machine for the changes to take effect!
