unable to install phalcon over windows 8 64bit need help

Hi, I was trying to install phalcon on windows 8 running PHP Version 5.4.22 i have followed the steps that were on the phalcon website.I have copied dll file into ext folder and also add extension reference into php.ini and restarted apache xampp server but still it dosent show from some reason.Can any one help please.

Thanx in advance,


Could you provide us with some additional information?

E.g. Are you receiving any errors when restarting apache? Are you using the correct phalcon .dll (NTS: Non thread safe or TS: Thread safe)?


Hi Scripton,

Thanx for getting back to me.please check i hope you needed this information and i think i downloaded correct one.There are no errors in apache but when i check using phpinfo() i dont see any phalcon extension there.

I have done it myself in removed xampp and installed latest wamp on my windows 8


PHP Version 5.5.12 Compiler MSVC11 (Visual C++ 2012) Architecture x64

and tried couple of libraries this library worked for me Phalcon 1.3.1 - Windows x64 for PHP 5.5.0 (VC11) below you can find the link to download.

hope it will help others in future enjoy the great framework and keep up the good work.

Yeah this worked for me too. The issue is that phalcon 1.3.2 is NTS but WAMP is TS. Only the older version is TS. Older version which is TS is Phalcon 1.3.1 - Windows x64 for PHP 5.5.0 (VC11) (March 26 2014 18:59:48 EDT / sha1: 48f41f6d3b8de3b5d3643a826dea696c49bdcd52) which could be downloaded easy from .
