I have followed this tutorial:

and moved through these steps:

Installing Apache on Windows
Installing PHP with Apache on Windows

At this very last step, when i go to localhost/phpmyadmin i am getting the error:

phpMyAdmin - Error
The mysqli extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration. <a href="Documentation.html#faqmysql" target="documentation"><img class="icon" src="./themes/pmahomme/img/b_help.png" width="11" height="11" alt="Documentation" title="Documentation" /></a>

My environment is:


Windows 7, 64 bit.




PHP 5.2 (5.2.17)
VC6 x86 Thread Safe (2011-Mar-22 13:29:30)


MySQL Community Server 5.0.95
