are you sure they are stored there?
additionally make sure that there's no other php.ini hanging around in your system which causes the error.

I have installed PHP4.3.2 on a Win2k Server with IIS 5.0. Everything works great till I uncomment this line.


; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
;extension_dir = "./"
extension_dir = "C:\php\extensions"

I get this message.

Unknown(): Unable to laod dynamic library 'C:\php\extensions\php_ldap.dll' - The operating system cannot run %1

I am not sure if it is setup right but it use to work before the update any suggestions.

Sorry guess left something out. It worked on the previous install I did and once I upgraded it stopped working as specified above. I have checke the files and they are there. I have also made sure there are no php.ini files on the system rebooted, stopped and started the website etc nothing seems to work. Also the Win2k server is all up to date on patches. Thought I would add that some Microsoft patches break things.
