I downloaded the binary distribution for mcrypt from:

and I get an error when start the module from IIS.

The error seems to be coming from API incompatibility.
I tried to load other extensions that come from the PHP distribution and they work properly but this one (php_mcrypt.dll) doesn't.

I am in the end of a project and need desperately encryption.

I would be very pleased if you can give me a solution.

Many thanks in advance.

Did you get this file:

Did you follow the intructions that are included in that zip?

Yes, I downloaded such zip file and correctly followed the instructions attached but an error happens when loading the dll. 
This error always appears in the System Event Log, and it is:

Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\php-4.2.3-Win32\extensions\php_mcrypt.dll'

I look forward to your response as soon as you can.

Many Thanks

Which version of PHP are you using? These .dlls work only with 4.3.0.
 [2003-01-09 06:37 UTC] samuel at nrs-group dot com

I updated php from 4.2.3 to 4.3 and it works properly.
Thank you very much for your help.
Kind regards,
