Unable to Activate

Unable to Activate

I am using Windows 7 x64 and develop using XAMP. I followed your instructions for setting up the testing server and adding content to the page using CMS builder, but when I get to the activation page, I get an error: ERROR: PowerCMS cannot activate without cURL installed and functional on your PHP server. Please activate cURL before attempting to proceed.

I put the library files (libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll) in the Windows/SysWOW64 folder as suggested on other sites, but to no avail.

1) With unlimited licenses, why do we need to go through the process of activation?
2) How do I get cURL working on my local server so I can validate the product?
