Depending on which whose version of curl you downloaded, you may need to
download one or more extra DLLs, too. Those could include libcurl, zlib,
openssl, or more. A README file in the package you downloaded ought to
say, or you may need to use a DLL dependency tool to find out what
library is missing.
