I am looking for installing zeromq on my Windows 7 machine for using zeromq with PHP (I am using WAMP server (5.3.4), Apache Server 2.2.17).

I followed the documentation on their site, but I don't know what to do. I installed the zeromq from the following site, then I tried to copy the dll from this site but it's down.

Where can I get the DLL? Am I want to install only the Windows installer from from this link, or is there anything else needed?

I have downloaded the dll from this site

I'm using PHP 5.3.4 x64 version and Windows 7 x64. I tried the following steps:

  1. I have installed ZeroMQ-3.2.2rc2~miru1.5-x64
  2. copied libzmq.dll to c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.4
  3. copied php-zmq\php53\php53-ts_zeromq-3.2.2 to c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.4\ext
  4. enabled the php_zmq extension in php.ini
  5. I restarted the WAMP. It shows

    'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.3.4/ext/php_zmq.dll' - %1 is not a valid win32 application

What could be the problem?

Again I tried with the Wamp x86(php 5.4.3) version and windows 7 x64

  1. I have installed ZeroMQ-3.2.2rc2~miru1.5-x86.exe
  2. copied libzmq.dll to c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3
  3. copied php-zmq\php54\php54-ts_zeromq-3.2.2 to c:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3\ext
  4. enabled the php_zmq extension in php.ini
  5. I restarted the WAMP. It shows

    PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.4.3/ext/php_zmq.dll' - The specified module could not be found.\r\n in Unknown on line 0

I had the same problem. Using dll from php-zmq_zeromq-{version}-zts folder fixed the problem for me.
