One more addition. If you need to setup non-thread-safe PHP on XAMPP/Apache to use loadextension, look at this article: https://paulshipley.id.au/blog/coding-tips/improve-php-performance-with-fastcgi-on-xampp-for-windows/

Tl;dr - you need to install&configure mod_fcgid module for Apache.

For newbies like me: if loadExtension fails with "Not supported in multithreaded Web servers" message (which always happens on IIS and sometimes - on Apache), you need to use non-thread-safe build of PHP, which is not always a bad idea; see https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/what-is-thread-safe-or-non-thread-safe-in-php/
