PHP Scripts can't find the FDF Library functions when using the ISAPI modules.

Reproduce code:
function CreateNoticeMBCForm($id)
	$fdf = fdf_create();		
	fdf_set_value($fdf, 'Name', 'Name');
	fdf_set_file($fdf, GetCurrentPDF('NoticeMBC', $id));
	Header("Content-type: application/vnd.fdf");
//You have to create a PDF File and Insert it into the fdf_set_file function

Expected result:
A PDF file pops up with the text fields populated with the values contained within the FDF file.

Actual result:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function fdf_create() in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Test\FDFFileGen.php on line 599

I must enable the module first to be able to use it.
And don't forget to read the docs:

Note to Win32 Users: In order to enable this module on a Windows environment, you must copy fdftk.dll from the DLL folder of the PHP/Win32 binary package to the SYSTEM32 folder of your windows machine. (Ex: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32 or C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32)

The dll is enabled in the PHP.ini file and the dependent DLL, fdftk.dll is also in the system path.  I got this to work using the PHP-CGI.exe executable, but when I switch the system over to the ISAPI stuff, this is when it breaks.  Even when using the ISAPI stuff, I can use the command line PHP.exe and execute files with the FDF library functions with no problem.  It seems to only not work for the ISAPI PHP module.

It's obviously NOT enabled, otherwise you wouldn't get this message.
The reason could be different php.ini used.

A. There is only ONE and only ONE php.ini file for each of the three servers that this is happenning for.

B. The Extension is enabled on all three servers with the fdftk.dll in the windows System32 subdir.  I even checked that the fdftk.dll to make sure that it is from the latest version of php.

Also, let me clarify what exactly I'm doing.  I setup the webserver to run using the PHP-CGI.exe to execute the php scripts, and everything works like it should.  Then I go to the webserver and switch it to using the ISAPI module (php5isapi.dll) and then everything works (MSSQL, MYSQL, and CURL modules) but for some reason I can't determine, the FDF module doesn't load up for some reason.  I haven't messed with any of the configuration files (php.ini) or anything.

It's easy to see which php.ini ise used:
PHP tells that at the top of phpinfo().
Please check that the right php.ini is there and you've restarted the server. After that check your error log (Event Viewer or how do you call it..) to see if there are any errors related.

Now here's an odd turn. I switched the web server back from the PHP-CGI to ISAPI and now it sees the FDF Module fine.  Unfortunately, it now doesn't load up the Curl library.  There isn't a max amount of libraries it can load, is there?

Note to Win32 Users: In order to enable this module on a Windows environment, libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll must be present in your PATH.

Thank you for solving this problem.
