- phpMyAdmin 2.2.2

When I try to add a extension (e.g. php_pdf.dll),
I get the following error messige back:
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.1.0 Content-type: text/html PHP Warning: Unable to load dynamic library './php_pdf.dll' - The specified module could not be found. in Unknown on line 0

I tryed the following ways in the php.ini:
extension_dir = ./
extension_dir = D:\Tools\PHP\extensions
extension_dir = D:\Tools\PHP\extensions\
extension_dir = D:/Tools/PHP/extensions
but nothings works.
I'm using the dlls witch where part of the zip file from
your download site.

The new dlls are very smale (e.g. pdf now 92k, before 500k)

Do you have any idea. Thank you for your support/help.

Best wishes

Okay, well I resolved my problem at least... 
This message is a little misleading!

Warning : Unable to load dynamic library './extensions/php_pdf.dll' - The specified module could not be found.

When I extracted all the files from php_pdf.dll WAS placed in C:\PHP\extensions
You *MUST* copy all the files from C:\PDP\dlls to your 
WINNT\System32 directory (in this case, pdflib.dll being most important)

Hope that helps some of you!
