After installing php 5.3.1 got error saying missing ntwdblib.dll

Post icon  Posted 24 November 2009 - 12:57 AM

Dear experts,
after I installed php 5.3.1, VC6 x86 Non Thread Safe version, I got error saying:

Quote

This application failed to start because ntwdblib.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


What is this error? Is this a bug from php? What is this ntwdblib.dll file?

regards,
ethereal1m

WAMP for windows
XAMPP for any OS :)

If it's required for MS-SQL, try just disabling the MS-SQL extensions in your php.ini. It's probably just a third-party library that you don't have.

I had a similar problem yesterday, but related to a DLL for an Oracle extension. I didn't need that extension, so just commenting out the line to load it fixed the problem.
