Which version of XAMPP have you installed?
Version can be seen at the top of the \xampp\readme_en.txt file.
What location have you installed XAMPP?
Can be seen using Windows Explorer.
Your answers will tell us perhaps why you can't find the php_eaccelerator.dll
file which, in a default installation, is in C:\xampp\php\ext folder - but alas in 1.7.4 version the file appears to be missing (1.7.3 was the last version it is included - 1.7.5 beta (VC9) also is missing this dll).
I found a php_eaccelerator.dll for 1.7.4 version's PHP 5.3.5 (VC6 X86 32bit):
(which also contains in the index other useful files like the php_apc.dll extension)http://tanguy.tk/php/535_vc6/
Direct download link:php_eaccelerator.535ts.vc6_x86.zip
These and other dlls can be found in this Apache Lounge Forum page 2 topic
Alternatively you may want to download and use version 1.7.3 from here:http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP Windows
which has the eAccelerator.dll included.
The 1.7.5 beta versions are compiled with VC9 so the eAccelerator dll version is different again but I see this is also available from the above Apache Lounge Forum link and both are eAccelerator dlls are reported to be in a good working condition
Or you may download the VC9 compiled version direct from this file index link here:http://tanguy.tk/php/536_vc9
entries in the \xampp\php\php.ini file are way down near the end of the file at about line 1915 in XAMPP version 1.7.4.
