WPI installed the 64 bit version to C:\Program Files\PHP\v7.3 , it installs all of php too !
Yes. The way the Web Platform Installer works, each product can specify dependencies (other products which must be installed before the product will work). WinCache depends upon PHP, since part of installing WinCache is magically updating the php.ini,
so that things Just Work™.
If you want just the php_wincache.dll, you can install the developer bits, and then place them in your PHP's ext directory, and update your php.ini by hand.
Developer bits are found out on SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/wincache/files/development/ . Be sure to pick the WinCache that matches your PHP version and flavor.
If you try to mix-and-match, you're going to have a Bad Day™.
