If your having problems with php curl not starting using the following wamp installation:
wampserver2.2e-php5.4.3-httpd2.2.22-mysql5.5.24-x64.exe on Windows 64bit.
wampserver2.2e-php5.4.3-httpd-2.4.2-mysql5.5.24-x64.exe on Windows 64bit.
Getting curl failed to start because the side-by-side configuration incorrect?
Getting the following error in the event log?
Activation context generation failed for “c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3\ext\php_curl.dll”. Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.DebugCRT,processorArchitecture=”amd64″,publicKeyToken=”1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b”,type=”win32″,version=”9.0.21022.8″ could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
Download the following:
Or replace the entire PHP folder using
Replace the old php_curl.dll with the new one in \wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3\ext\
And, try starting Apache again.
Hope this helps someone!
