The problem happened just after I updated php_5.2.13 to php_5.2.14. You known, the php_5.2.13 is working well. I rename D:\php to D:\php_5.2.13,and rename D:\php_5.2.14 to D:\php ,and copy D:\php_5.2.13\php.ini to D:\php .Then restart IIS.

When php_5.2.14 is running,
I run the Test script , it didnot work.
The D:\php\error.log said about "not loading the php_curl.dll".
But the D:\php\ext\php_curl.dll is existing and the D:\php\php.ini options of php_curl.dll is open.
Then I run D:\php\php.exe -m, it still didnot work. Alert window said about "the zlib.dll is error".
I found the size of php_curl.dll in php_5.2.14 is small than in php_5.2.13. But other files in D:\php\ext is same of size.

I experienced the same problem with the binaries released on the 22nd of july (build date : 2010-07-21). A workaround was to add the zlib library (version 1.2.3) into the system path or into the PHP directory (with filename zlib.dll, not zlib1.dll).

The binaries at (build date : 2010-07-27) work like expected, without any zlib.dll related error.

Just a comment to note that the binaries on the main PHP download page ( still contain the bug (build date : 2007-07-21). 

Please update these files or add a link to (like you did for the PHP 5.3.x branch).

People are downloading a buggy releases and cribbing about PHP. Please fix that. That's just an HTML edit.

The CURL in my installation is still not working. I tool 2010-07-27 5.2.14 release. I have tried putting zlib 1.2.5 as well as zlib 1.2.3 in to C:\WINDOWS\System32 directory.

I don't understand why the status of this bug is Closed. The problem still exists 
in 5.2.14. 

Has a patch been released, if so where? If not, what is the workaround?

Search your computer for a valid zlib.dll file.  I used the version that came with Macromedia Dreamweaver 8.  No error.

I'm having the same problem with both the windows installer and the zipped up binaries.

Apache error log reports:
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '{obscured}php_curl.dll' - The specified module could not be found.\r\n in Unknown on line 0

I replaced the 5.2.14 php_curl.dll (stamped 21/07/10 18:44) with the old backup I had from 5.2.6 and the problem appears to go away. I'm not that comfortable with swapping in such an old DLL though.
