Well, it seems PHP can't find the extension. Do you have configured extension_dir ?

it alway raise a message "PHP startup: Unable to load dynamic library ....php_phalcon.dll". please help me!!!

That happens in xampp when you use the wrong extension dll. Depending on your installation you may need the NTS(Non-thread safe) version.

Check http://phalcon.io/en/download/windows And try either the NTS or regular versions of the extension. If that doesn't work try alternative between the 32 and 64 bit versions.

Also for what its worth - don't develop in xampp. Its great for starting out but you will have tons of heart aches between development and production. Check out vagrant, develop locally in a virtual box, and learn some unix to save yourself from a whole host of problems later.
