FastCGI Process error when enable cURL


I have:

windows Server 2003 - IIS 7.0 - PHP 5.2

Now I tried to install cURL. I get the php_curl.dll in the php.ini and have the right extension path. I also added the both needed dll-files to the system32 directory.

Poorly as soon as I activate the extension=php_curl.dll line, I get an internal error 500 with Fast-CGI cannot be loaded correctly.

When I comment the extension=php_curl.dll line out, it works fine.

Any ideas?

I found this in the error log from windows events:

Fehlerhafte Anwendung php-cgi.exe,

Try executing it from the command line (PHP that is). My guess is the curl lib that you are referencing is either out of date, invalid or compiled for a different version of PHP...

Open cmd.exe, navigate to the php binary directory, type php.exe -v
