After installing a fresh copy of PHP 5.3.2 binaries for Windows (extracted from as a module for Apache 2.2.4, and modifying php.ini to load some extensions (like GD2, MBString, MySQL and MySQLi, and cURL), the cURL extension doesn't load correctly.

Apache error log says:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\\Program Files\\PHP\\ext\\php_curl.dll' - The operating system cannot run %1.\r\n in Unknown on line 0

On phpinfo(), all other loaded extensions are reported but cURL is not loaded, hence not listed in phpinfo().

Expected result:
Expected result is successful loading of cURL extension.

Actual result:
cURL extension fails to load.

I am having the same problem. The required DLLs are already in the PATH of Environment Variables and the line for cURL is already uncommented in php.ini

I've tried everything but nothing works.

PS: my OS is Win XP SP3
