in reply to Importing a jpeg into an AD attribute with Win32::OLE

I don't have a compatible LDAP server to test with, so I can't experiment. Could you try using the ReadBinaryFile() function above translated into Perl:

sub ReadBinaryFile { my $filename = shift; my $stream = Win32::OLE->new("ADODB.Stream"); $stream->{Type} = 1; # adTypeBinary $stream->Open; $stream->LoadFromFile($filename); my $retval = Variant(); $stream->Dispatch("Read", $retval); return $retval; }
The last 3 lines in the function are written in a way to preserve the VT_UI1|VT_ARRAY variant exactly as it was returned from the stream reader.

In the code you were using, did the $content have the UTF8 flag set? That's about the only thing I can think of right now that would mess up the conversion from a Perl string to a COM byte array.
