in reply to connect to DBD::MYSQL

If MySQL is running on the local machine, there are actually two ways you can connect to it; either via TCP/IP on the localhost address (127.0.0.1) or via a named pipe.

...Ofcourse, this doesn't actually explain the error you're getting, but it may help you bypass it: 4.2.2. Connecting to the MySQL Server

The article seems to suggest you may need to tweak things a bit on Windows to use named pipes on that platform.
