PHP 5.0.0 working fine with no modules.  Change php.ini to load php_ifx.dll extension and get a popup dialog saying:

PHP Startup: Invalid library (maybe not a PHP library) 'php_ifx.dll'

Informix Client SDK 3.8 is installed and working.  Had Informix extension working fine under PHP 4.3.2 on same system.

Check your system - it likely has old php_ifx.dll somewhere (c:\windows or c:\windows\system32, probably).
Delete it and make sure PHP uses the new one.

Deleted all instances of php_ifx.dll on the system, copied the file from the distribution .zip into the directory listed as extension_dir in my php.ini file.  Still receiving the same error.

Changed the file name to php_infx.dll and changed php.ini to load extension=php_infx.dll and received the same error message with my new filename in it.
