Adding extensions to a Windows PHP

My development environment is set up thanks to EasyPHP. I've used this app since the first days that I started to write PHP and it followed me since.

I guess I have a better understanding of what it does under the scenes now and could probably work with a clean and custom Apache/MySQL/PHP install. But I like simplicity.

Anyway, I just wanted to run my imap script from the CLI but ran into "Fatal error : imapopen not defined_".

The same script was perfectly working when accessing it from my browser but failed when launched from the CLI.

That when I remember that I needed to enabled the php_imap.dll extensions in both EasyPHP PHP options (for web access) and C:\windows\php.ini (for cli access)
