The dot "." seems wrong to me as it shouldn't be there, the extension_dir path
may be wrong here.

Make sure you have correctly enabled the extension directory in php.ini :
  extension_dir = C:\php\extensions

and that there is a file C:\php\extensions\php_gd2.dll . If you don't have this
file, download the PHP binaries archive from php.net and copy the file from

PHP 5.2 is better and faster, and it also produces slightly sharper thumbnails.
There is no reason not to uprade to PHP 5, if you can.
