DBD::Pg on Windows with ActivePerlby tswall (Monk)
|on Oct 20, 2009 at 14:00 UTC||Need Help??|
tswall has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been trying for some time now to get DBD::Pg to install via PPM on version 5.10 of ActivePerl. I'm hoping some esteemed Monk will be able to offer some insights.
I have installed the following under Windows Vista:
Postgresql v8.4 (latest windows binary)
When I try to run a simple script with a call to DBI->connect() I get the following:
In the Command prompt window there is a different error message:
I have gone through this node in great detail, as well as many other posts in various forums (PgFoundry, ActiveSite, etc), and can't get anywhere. I gather that the problem is some incompatability between the MSVC runtime libraries that Perl.exe expects and what it finds, as there are a number of posts about sticking MSCVR80.dll or perl.exe.manifest files in the perl/bin directory to make the interpreter happy. I have tried many iterations of this, and I am convinced that I have compatible versions of MSVCR80.dll and a manifest describing it that Perl.exe can find, but I still get this same set of errors. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
