 +===== Why can't I use the memcached library under Windows? ===== 
 +The memcached library is much more heavily featured, more modern and better maintained. The problem with it is not a problem with ADOdb, nor a problem with PHP. The PHP module is dependent on the 3rd party library **libmemcache**,​ which has no Windows support. Any Windows DLLs you might find floating around the web will __always__ be built on the memcache library.
