I installed XAMPP on my laptop running VISTA with the UAC turned off, like it says you should.
The MySQL bit is working fine, as is the PHP so long as I don't use any MySQL commands.
Also, when I try to run any of the supplied PHP programs that come with XAMPP, I get the error message "Cannot load MySQL extension".
I've looked in php.ini - don't see anything untoward there.
Please help, this is driving me mad ! many thanks.
