DB_File on Windows

on Feb 11, 2003 at 16:02 UTC ( #234431=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I cannot get DB_File installed on my Windows machine. I am running Activestate Perl 5.6.1 and PPM 2.1.6. I have already reviewed your thread on this problem, but the referenced binaries do not resolve my issue. I have tried various methods to install DB_File (including recompiling BerkeleyDB and the full makefile process) but none have worked. This seems to be a fairly common problem and I'm hoping that you can shed some additional light. Thank you, Jim

    For me this works:

    1) download DB_File.zip from http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/6xx-builds-only

    2) unzip the archive in a directory

    from the DOS prompt:

    3) cd in this directory

    4) write:
    ppm install --location=. db_file
      Dree, Thank you for the feedback. The information that I now receive is: Error installing package 'DB_File': Read a PPD for 'DB_File', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x8-multi-thread). Is there a different binary that I need? Thanks, Jim
        Looks like I got lucky and stumbled across the solution.

        I downloaded a DB_File Perl Module compiled for Microsoft Windows NT/2000. It installed without a hitch.
        Instructions for installing locally with PPM are included with the download.

        Jim
