    OS:  windows 10E x64 1709

    IIS:  10

    PHP Version 7.2.1 NTS

    Since installing PHP NTS 7.2 The WinCache extension fails to load with the following error:


    PHP Warning: PHP Startup: wincache: Unable to initialize module
    Module compiled with module API=20160303
    PHP compiled with module API=20170718
    These options need to match
    in Unknown on line 0


    Looks like the wincache module hasn't been updated in sometime. Using this link to download:

    Any ideas?

    MS should update their download link.

    Microsoft is migrating materials from this site to their new Docs site. However, out-of-date information is not yet all updated. I just opened an issue to see if they can update the information accordingly,
