Hello Mikko,
      Thanks for your last suggestion. I tried it out but I got the following error in my apache_error_log:
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.3.8/ext/php_zmq.dll' - %1 is not a valid Win32 application.\r\n in Unknown on line 0. What could be the cause of this. I'm indeed running PHP 5.3.8 and Apache2.2.21.

The http://snapshot.zero.mq/ page contains a link called php53-ext,
which has the extension built for PHP 5.3. It contains both
thread-safe and non-threadsafe versions of the extension (php_zmq.dll)
alongside with libzmq.dll, which is needed as a dependency.

You need to place libzmq.dll in the search path for runtime libraries
and load php_zmq.dll in your php.ini. This build will only work with
PHP 5.3.
