PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\xampp-win32-1.4.9\xampp\php\ext\php_exif/dll' - The specified module could not be found.
This does not look right - php_exif/dll
Should it not be php_exif.dll
Check the php.ini file for a typo.
Is that path above where the extensions are located?
Did you install XAMPP to this path?
The extension path in your php.ini file should resemble that path; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "C:\xampp-win32-1.4.9\xampp\php\ext\"
What is the location of the php.ini file you edited?
The correct file and location is:xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
This can also be confirmed by going to:http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php
Other possible solutions for this type of error:
Obviously you need to make sure that file exists in the ext directory.
Make sure the extension directory path is configured correctly in the php.ini file.
If you uncommented all the extension in the php.ini file it can cause this issue - only uncomment extensions that you know you require.
The dll extension may be out of date.
Sometimes copying the errant dll into the Windows system32 directory helps according to some.
This link also tells it how it is:http://www.somacon.com/p447.php
This quote from another forum that was a reply to a similar question as your.
The DLLs php is trying to load may need some others that you don't have in your installation.
You may download this tool:
Dependency Walker http://www.dependencywalker.com/
That will tell you what files are missing (if any).
You may need some files on your (phpinstallation)/dlls directory. For instance: iconv.dll (not php_iconv.dll). Check if you have them.
This Google Search
may also hold some answers.
Hope this helps in time and before you are totally eclipsed.
