I'm trying to get PDFlib (pdflib.com) installed. I'm running into all kinds of trouble and I can't figure out why.
First off, I'm using WAMP and the icon that I double click on to get it running is "Wampserver32." I mention that because in light of the error message I'm getting, I'm thinking perhaps that's significant.
When I start WAMP, I get this error:
The PDFlib site offers more than one option and I've tried every one that I've found.
I've gone with:
After install the dll into the ext directory and copying and pasting the dll name into the extensions portion of the php.ini, I've been met with defeat every time.
I should mention that the MSWin64 dynamic offers two different dll's; one is in the php-700-nozts_VS14 directory and the other is in the php-700_VS14 directory. The option (MSWin32) has "pdflib.dll" only.
In all three scenarios, I keep coming up with the same kind of error.
I don't think that it should be this hard - that I must be missing something.
It took some doing and several re-starts to ensure I had the right Visual Studio version and non-threaded dynamic etc., but I got WAMP to start with no issues and the .dll file is listed in the extensions directory.
So, we're almost there!
I've got another question if you've got a moment. While I've been able to seemingly install the library correctly, there isn't a "check mark" alongside the way it's listed in my list of extensions when you click on the WAMP icon on my desktop. It's documented correctly on my php.ini file, but it doesn't show up as "active" on my list and I still get a fatal error when I try to run one of the test files.
