Download the Fixed Curl Version

Short Answer: you need to download and install the corrected version of libCurl for PHP to get it working on 64-bit versions of PHP. 

Download from this link:
http://www.anindya.com/php-5-4-3-and-php-5-3-13-x64-64-bit-for-windows/

 

Helpful Hint for those who Already Have PHP Installed

Scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN to the bottom of the page and you will see a tiny little heading for "Fixed curl extensions:".  Download ONLY the php_curl.dll file you need.  I think the other links are the full PHP library with the old/bad CURL file still in the archive.  Once again, you should only download the fixed curl extension (it will only be like 300kb).

WAMP Users Lookout

Some of the latest version(s) of 64-bit WAMP shipped with the bad PHP curl library.  Download the corrected 64-bit Curl Library for PHP
