    Hi,

    Plesk 11.0.9 Update #32 on Server2008RC2.

    Trying to install Magento for a client, given the error 'The 'mcrypt' extension was not found'.

    Cannot find any instructions on how to add this in a Windows Environment, only Linux.

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Edit:
    Just FYI, 'libmcrypt.dll' and 'ext\php_mcrypt.dll' are in C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Additional\PleskPHP5
    I also have 'extension=php_mcrypt.dll' in the "Additional directives" box which edits php.ini

    It's easy. Find your loaded configuration file with phpinfo(). The Windows binary package contains the php_mcrypt.dll and the auxiliary libmcrypt.dll. If php is setup correctly and functioning on your web server, you should only need to uncomment the extension=php_mcrypt.dll line in the php.ini file that php is using and reboot to get any change made to the php.ini to take effect.
