Please also ensure that manual package you are downloading for WINCACHE is for PHP 5.2. The link to download PHP 5.2 compatible WINCACHE is
http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9697970. Yes you will need to copy the php_wincache.dll in the 'ext' folder and change your PHP.INI.
The link to MSI for PHP (Non thread safe vc6 build) is
http://windows.php.net/downloads/releases/php-5.2.12-nts-Win32-VC6-x86.msi. This is what you should be using to install PHP.
You should be able to run WINCACHE with the above things.

Can you disable WINCACHE and somehow allow me to view the PHPINFO page?

Thanks for sharing the PHPINFO. You are having Thread Safe build of PHP installed and that is the reason WINCACHE is not gettting loaded properly. Please uninstall it and install the Non Thread Safe Build from
http://windows.php.net/download/. Pasting the link below too.
Once the NTS build of PHP is installed you can ensure that it is indeed NTS build by viewing your PHPINFO page and look at "Thread Safety" in the top of the table. It should say Disabled and not Enabled. Currently it is saying enabled. So please install
NTS build of PHP and than use WINCACHE. It should work.

Good to see that your PHP is working with WINCACHE. I am able to run my Drupal site using PHP 5.2.12 and WINCACHE smoothly. There might be some other issue with MySQL. How did you install MySQL extension? Does the PHPINFO page shows MySQL?

Did you recycle IIS after changing php.ini? FastCGI 1.0 doesn't monitor changes to php.ini and you need to recycle php-cgi.exe processes yourself for php.ini changes to get picked up. FastCGI 1.5 can be configured to recycle php-cgi.exe processes when php.ini
