Installing mailparse.dll for PHP 5.6.04

Hello folks. I need someone to help me install the php_mailparse.dll to use
 with php-mime-mail.parser v3.0.4 for PHP 5.6.04.
I downloaded mailparser-3.1.0.tgz file and extracted it the folder mail-parse-3.0.4.
I downloaded php-mime-mail.parser and extracted it to php-mime-mail-parser-3.,0,4
I moved both folders to my project directory. Made sure that my php.ini was adjusted.
I thought the  php_mailparse.dll  would be contained in the zip file but it wasn't.
I have read and read the instructions. Do I have to do the following ?
I do not have a folder 'mailparse-3.0.2/phpsize nor a config folder.

 (I do not have PECL).I am  NOT good at this sort of thing but can't use composer because my client uses PHP 5.6.04 so I do not want the latest version. I know composer makes simple but as I said, I needed a older version.

Thank you for any help.
Below is the only instructions I found.
pecl download mailparse
tar -xvf mailparse-3.0.2.tgz
cd mailparse-3.0.2/
sed -i 's/#if\s!HAVE_MBSTRING/#ifndef MBFL_MBFILTER_H/' ./mailparse.c
sudo mv modules/mailparse.so /usr/lib/php/201603

Best to first go through the above instructions, then report any problems.

Since PHP-5.6 is EOL (end of life... deprecated... dead... hackable...) you may find you have to use some older version (not latest) to match PHP-5.6 which likely sets your starting point.

If I did the instructions above + had problems, I'd contact the mailparse developer(s) asking about which mailparse version I should use with PHP-5.6 as they'll likely know if there's downlevel version you must use.
