    This error drives me nutes every time I install PHP5 and MySQL 4.x.
    I am vague on the details, but I think I needed to copy php_mysql.dll and php_mysqli.dll from the PHP extension directory (in my case php5/ext) to my Windows directory to fix it.

    I know I have trouble with it because the error message is innacurate. It claims not be able to find a file that does exist.
    Btw, there is another method of PHP installation that doesn't involve copying files around like this. I copy the files as a carry over from how PHP4 was installed. If you're not using this method this post probably won't help you.
