It works but you are commenting the name of the downloaded file
instead of
zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
;zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.9.7-7.4-vc15-x86_64.dll"
i used

;zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.9.7-7.4-vc15-x86_64.dll"
