MSSQL error (if not enabled) using WAMP / PHP 5.3.4
I am getting the error:
"Fatal error: Throw" RuntimeException "with message 'Extension" mssql "not loaded" in ... "
Although it is included. In php.ini (PHP version 5.3.4) it has no results (not
and appears in the PHP extension options list in the system tray menu. What could be causing this?
Also related to gender, I cannot run php version 5.3.1. I downloaded and installed it, but when I switched to it in wamp, the wamp system will try to stay yellow (instead of white, indicating it is ready to go). And no php downloads anywhere / can get to localhost or phpmyadmin at all. I tried running 5.3.1 as working for this mssql error.
I am running WampServer version 2.1 on a 64-bit box with Windows 7. This same fine tuning works very well on my Windows XP (32-bit) box with 5.3.1.

Same problem. My apache log shows
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.3.4/ext/php_mssql.dll' - The specified module could not be found.\r\n in Unknown on line 0.
I have the same problem with the ZIP module. Modules do not legally exist.
I tried to upgrade to PHP 5.3.1 from http://www.wampserver.com/en/addons_php.php but then my Apache didn't start at all; I am guessing this is an x64 / x86 issue.
Then tried to copy php_mssql.dll from 5.3.1 to my 5.3.4 directory and then restart apache and it was just more with error
PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.3.4/ext/php_mssql.dll' - %1 is not a valid Win32 application.
Installing WampServer 2.1e (active build), but 32-bit to see if there are any differences. There were. This creates PHP 5.3.5 packages that still don't contain php_mssql.dll. BUT I was then able to use PHP 5.3.1 which I downloaded (apparently it is capable with this WAMP build, whether it is 2.1e or because it is 32-bit, I don't know or care).
So the point in history is that if you are trying to use WAMP Server with the PHP MSSQL extension, you will need Wamp Server 2.1e (32-bit in particular) and PHP 5.3. 1 .
Also note that I still cannot get the ZIP extension working with this setting, but luckily it is not essential to me for my current project.
Hope this helps someone.
