Firstly, I apologize for my short english, as english is not my mother tongue.

What I'm trying to do is install pecl module (specifically, pecl_http) but console says can't find '<package name>.dsp' file. Through web surfing, I found out that pecl no more uses dsp file but uses config.w32. But what I encounter is the error message requiring dsp file.

I don't think there's problem with pecl_http module, as I encounter similar error with all other modules.

I figured out that the .tgz file downloaded by pecl actually contains two folders (pecl_http, pecl_http-1.6.2) and both contained only 'http.dsp' file, not 'pecl_http.dsp'. (and each folder had 'config.w32' file. This must be the main role when compiling)

So I suppose that pecl installed on my computer doesn't know it should use '.w32 file' instead of '.dsp'. But I don't know how to make pecl to be aware of it!

I'm currently using WampServer 2.0f(PHP5.2.8) and Vista x64. I especially suspect WampServer, but not certain. PEAR works just fine. But with pecl, downloading tgz works great but the problem occurs when compiling (trying to compile source code using old-fashioned method(DSP file)? Which is imcompatible with downloaded source files?) 

Is there any method to upgrade pecl only, to make it use .w32 file? Or any options will be fine.

I'll looking forward to see the solution. It just make me crazy!! :(

p.s hope my english makes sense to you guys...

Reproduce code:
ERROR: The DSP pecl_http.dsp does not exist

Expected result:
install ok: channel://<package name>

Actual result:
downloading pecl_http-1.6.2.tgz ...
Starting to download pecl_http-1.6.2.tgz
71 source files, building
Error: The DSP pecl_http.dsp does not exist

In my computer there's only VS2008 Professional installed. Could this be a problem? wait for response.

pecl + Windows doesn't really work well together, AFAIK.
