The following problem has been found with the Loader installation:
The necessary zend_extension line could not be found in the configuration file, C:\xampp\php\php.ini.

ionCube Loader Wizard
The ionCube Loader is not currently installed successfully.
Please check that the Apache web server software has been restarted.
IonCube has a ready solution which leads you step by step. Just use wizard/installer from their page:
Installing with the Loader Installer or Loader Wizard (recommended)
It is recommended to install a Loader using the Loader Installer. The Installer is a Windows application that can deploy a Loader automatically to any supported operating system over FTP or SFTP. If this cannot be used, we also provide a Loader Wizard PHP script that gives guidance on installing manually.
Loader Installer: ZIP
Loader Wizard: ZIP TGZ
To use the Wizard, 1) download and install the script into your web space, then 2) launch the script in your browser. The Wizard will give guidance on selection and installation of the correct Loader package.
