Everytime I nedd to change my PHP extension file localtion I have to amend php.ini, namely the following lines:
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
; http://php.net/extension-dir
; extension_dir = "./"
; On windows:
; extension_dir = "ext"
extension_dir = "C:\Myapplication\WBS\php\ext\"

Whenever the "Myapplication" Directory has spaces between the path, for example "Program Files"  PHP can´t reach the directory where the extensions reside.
Can anyone give some clue to solve this?
Kind regards
Lucilia

You need to generate Windows Short File Names:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/142982

Open a CMD promt in Windows and type:

dir *. /x

This will give you the short names.

For example, "program files" becomes "PROGRA~1"

The strongest recommendation is to put your files in directories without that problem.  "C:\PHP\ext" is what is recommended.
