I have encountered the same problem.
Just wanted to test if mysqli class has been made final or extend-able.
I would be very pleased if this will be fixed since the old versions are not able to be loaded aswell.

If I read the CVS commit log correctly, the MySQLi class should now be extendable. Download a snapshot from to check. (I don't actually know if the libmysqli.dll is included in the snaps, but it's a place to start.)

doesn't have the MySQLi dlls anymore, so something went wrong somewhere... perhaps with the change you mention

Nothing is wrong; the extension now requires libmysql 4.1.2 and because MySQL doesn't provide those libraries for windows we can't compile the extension anymore.

So this means we will never be able to use MySQLi anymore on the Windows platform?
 [2004-06-09 10:13 UTC]
That's up to MySQL AB whether they want to provide us with those libs and headers.

php_mssql.dll is now available from

php_mysqli.dll and libmysqli.dll are now both available via

Note that this supports mysql 4.1.2 alpha, as mentioned by Derick earlier.

Extensibility is getting there :)

Fine that it is fixed now but why was not even a changelog entry about this problem.
I would appreciate a news post and an updated RC3 binary on the downloads page to avoid others running into this problem.
