I bought a software online called phpgrid which uses the Zend SafeGuard to encode it php files.
While installing my newly bought software I get this message:
Zend Optimizer not installed
This file was encoded by the Zend Encoder / Zend SafeGuard Suite
In order to run it, please install the freely available Zend Optimizer, version 2.1.0 or later.
What is the Zend Optimizer?
The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been freely available since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by taking PHP's intermediate code through multiple Optimization Passes, which replace inefficient code patterns with efficient code blocks. The replacement code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.
In addition to performance-improvement, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Encoder or Zend SafeGuard Suite.
The Zend Optimizer is a freely-available product from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies is the company that develops the scripting engine of PHP, also known as the Zend Engine.
The problem i'm having is that I've installed the Zend Optimizer, and I keep getting this same message. What i'm I doing wrong if any? Oh i'm using XAMPP 1.7.3
After reviewing the php.ini I notice this entry at the bottom of the php.ini
For some reason the directions do not look correct. Shouldn't ZendExtensionManager.dll be on the zend_extension_manager.optimizer_ts=? and shouldn't zend_extension_ts be pointing to C:\Program Files\Zend\ZendOptimizer-3.3.0\lib\Optimizer-3.3.0\php-5.2.x\ZendOptimizer.dll ?
I need a resoulation to this ASAP or I will have to ask for a refund for this software.
