PHP cURL issue with WAMP Server on Windows 7 (64 bit)

Just installed WampServer (64 bits & PHP 5.3) 2.2E recently on my new PC with Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bits). Initially cURL (php_curl.dll) was not loaded due to some reason.

Tried to enable the extension through wamp manager and, by directly editing the php.ini file, but failed. However after googling for few hours I found a fix. The problem was the curl extension that comes with the WampServer is not compatible with the system.

Here is the fix. Follow this link

Go to "Fixed curl extensions" and download the extension that matches your PHP version.

Extract and copy "php_curl.dll" to the extension directory of your wamp installation.
(i.e. C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.3.13\ext)

Restart Apache
