Bug #52705 error - missing zlib.dll
Submitted: 2010-08-26 05:40 UTC Modified: 2010-08-26 19:27 UTC
From: pfenderd at bellsouth dot net Assigned:
Status: Duplicate Package: CGI/CLI related
PHP Version: 5.2.14 OS: windows vista ultimate 32-bit
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
Running PHP in command-line mode, causes fatal error everytime.
Doing "php -v", causes error "php.exe - Unable to Locate Component".
Detail "This application has failed to start because zlib.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem".

This error occurs with the php.ini file created during installation of PHP.
Changing the php.ini file to log the errors did not show any errors. Obviously, the fatal error occurred during program initialization. Trying different arguments to php did not change the problem.  Everything was working properly with PHP version 5.2.6.  Now it never works.

The problem with the command-line mode was solved with the installation using 
"php-5.2.14-Win32-VC6-x86.msi" from the windows.php.net website.

However, this did not fix the bug reported as #52704.

There is another report about this issue, solved too. It was the curl extension who was responsible for this error.

However the other report you mention is not related to this issue.
