I've been having a few problems running PHP-based utilities within the command line ever since I enabled the XDebug. It runs just fine when executing script through a browser, but once I try an execute a script on the command line, it throws the following errors:

h:\www\test>@php test.php
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'E:\development\xampplite\php\ext\php_curl.dll' - The specified module could not be found in Unknown on line 0
PHP Warning:  Xdebug MUST be loaded as a Zend extension in Unknown on line 0


The script runs just fine after this, but it's something I can't seem to wrap my head around. Could it be a path issue within my php.ini config? I'm not sure if that's the case considering it throws the same error no matter where I access the @php environmental variable.

Also, all paths within my php.ini are absolute. Not really sure what's going on here. Any ideas?

Yes I think, you should check your Php.ini config, by default it's not on DEBUG mode, you havez to uncomment some lines, but I don't remember which line.
