I have an extension stored in a directory.  The directory where the extension is stored is set to the extension_dir.  The problem is that the extension is not being loaded at run time.  I have to manually load the extension using dl().  I don't want to have to do that because that wastes time.  How can I get it to be loaded at runtime so I can use it without having to call dl() first?

What extension are you trying to enable? Also make sure the path to your extensions directory is an absolute path to your extensions, for example:
extension_dir = "C:\php\ext"

Also make sure you have uncommented the extension you wish to enable too within the php.ini, for example for the gd library, find the following within the php.ini:
Now remove the semi-colon from the stat of the line. Save your php.ini, restart your webserver for the changes to take affect.
