php_extension "intl" should be installed and enabled for best results
and it points me to some documentation (http://docs.moodle.org/23/en/admin/environment/php_extension/intl). That page notes that some additional configuration adjustments might be needed in the WAMP stack, pointing to a thread about WAMPServer. However, it seems that XAMPP 1.8.1 has the same problem, as suggested by the following error messages:
httpd.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because icuuc46.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\xampp-1.8.1\php\ext\php_intl.dll'
- The specified module could not be found.
And by the following threads:
I've added "C:\xampp-1.8.1\php" to my SYSTEM PATH, and I can confirm that that makes Moodle pass its check and prevents the error messages from appearing.
I note that there were other options for getting this to work. Is there a method that is particularly recommended over the others? Is there a way and are there any plans to fix this so that this works in XAMPP out of the box? Thanks!
