    • Hey Clint and Peter, Use the given code snippet to test you have a working INTL extension configured or not.
      < ?php $formatter = new NumberFormatter('en_US', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY); echo $formatter->getTextAttribute(NumberFormatter::CURRENCY_CODE);

  5. Hello All,
    After applying steps provided by Arshad, Apache server needs to be restart. Here is complete steps:
    Step 1: Open XAMPP control panel
    Step 2: In Apache row Click on “Stop button” and then click on “config” button and choose PHP(php.ini) option.
    Step 3: open your php.ini file
    find for ;extension=php_intl.dll
    remove the comment ;
    Step 4: Save php.ini file and close it. Now Start your apache server from XAMPP Control Panel.
    Step 5: Refresh your Magento2 Installation.

    If you get always_populate_raw_post_data errror, then in php.ini search for “always_populate_raw_post_data” and make it to -1.
    That’s it! Happy Coding!

    You have to copy all the files (all files starts with icu*):



    And you also need to enable intl in php.ini file (uncomment this line):

    And restart the server. It should works fine.

    Of course, you need to replace the folder names with your own.
