I have compiled the source of PHP APC 3.1.13 Beta for Windows against various versions of PHP 5.4 including both PHP 5.4.4 and PHP 5.4.6. The .dlls where compiled on Windows 7 64bit and I have confirmed the first as working on Windows 7 64bit running XAMPP 1.8.0 which has PHP 5.4.4 and Apache 2.4.2. The LAMP stack is a 32bit build and so is the APC module – so it should run on 32bit Windows systems. Give them a test and leave a comment with success/failure and the system you tried. Requests welcome.
Please refer to my PHP Extensions Page for a complete list of downloads at.

php_apc.dll in to the
php/ext directory. On my system, using XAMPP, I copied it to:
Copy the APC admin script
apc.php in to a folder accessible to your webserver, in my case I copied it to:
View apc.php in your browser by going to e.g.
http://localhost/apc.php, it should say “No cache info available. APC does not appear to be running.”
Open up your
php.ini file, on my system it is located at
At the very bottom of the file append the following three lines:
Save the file. Restart your web server (I clicked on STOP and then START in the XAMPP control panel). Next reload the APC admin script by visiting or refreshing http://localhost/apc.php you should see a stats page load up.
