This looks to be like a path problem. Make sure the extension is store in the correct extension directory.

The settings of this can be found inside php.ini as something like

extension_dir = C:phpextensions

By default this is ext folder inside PHP installation.

Or, follow the instruction from PHP manual while installing extensions, if you are not sure what you are doing.
