Fresh install of WIN XP, SP2.
Apache 2.0.54
php 4.4.2
trying to configure to run php_EXIF.dll.
using php.ini-recommended except that extension php_exif.dll is enabled.

Apache fails to start.
comment extension php_exif.dll and all is well.
I note that php_exif.dll [using depends.exe] references MSJAVA and MPR.DLL and that MPR.dll [dley load load dependendency] shows unresolved import due to missing import function.

I provided a copy of MSJAVA.DLL [only that DLL and not entire install] and Apache still crashes.

php 4.4.0 worked previously, but java was probably on this system at that time. This system is fresh, java not installed and it has been updated to latest win xp critical updates.

Seems like php_exif should work in this case. MPR.DLL version 5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158)

Windows users must enable both the php_mbstring.dll and php_exif.dll DLL's in php.ini. The php_mbstring.dll DLL must be loaded before the php_exif.dll DLL so adjust your php.ini accordingly.

Sorry.. I thought I read install docs carefully... Missed the php_mbstring.dll dependency and seeing DLL dependencies in php_exif.dll sent me off in wrong direction. All is working well after activing php_mbstring.dll first.
