In php.ini (C:/XAMPP/php) look for
;extension=php_mcrypt.dll
and remove the ; from the beginning, if not there then just add it to the end of the file, save and restart Apache

Make sure Apache does stop before starting it again in the XAMPP control panel, and do an hard refresh in the browser.
If still no joy. Put the following in a text file and save as phpinfo.php in your root folder
<?php
phpinfo();
?>
Load the file in the browser and search for php_mcrypt and see if it listed as loaded.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is what happened for me

added php_mcrypt.dll to php.ini

Restarted the apache.

Getting the attached error.

In phpinfo, i dont see php_mcrypt.

In php.ini did you uncomment any other lines?
Look for php4ts.dll and uncomment it (assuming you are not using MSSQL)

Are you sure php_mcrypt.dll is in the php/ext folder - you shouldn't have needed to download it, it comes with xampp.
