Hi Monks,

Im running ActivePerl - 5.14.2 , which has DBD installed by default on my Windows XP

I'm new to this and its urgent ,Can someone please help me solving this ?

      Yes, I tried with google, but I didn't see any post helping me. All posts are pointing to 5.8.8 or lesser versions where DBD had to be installed manually , But I'm using 5.14.2 which has this module by default. I even verified it through PPM and found it in the list.

      Any way to find it was installed properly or not?

        DBD::Oracle is just the perl module, but it still requires either a full database installation or an Oracle-client installation. The message possibly stems from the shared object of the perl module not able to find the Oracle client libraries. I know how to show what Oracle.so expects on Linux/Unix, but I have no idea how to show that on Windows.

        Did you install the Oracle client where DBD::Oracle expects it? Dit you read the documentation for win64/win32 about the prerequisites?

        No.

        Perl does not come with Oracle "by default". Maybe your Perl distribution comes with DBD::Oracle, but you will still need to install the Oracle client libraries. See the articles I linked, which all explain this and tell you what to do.

[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
[thezip]: Okay Corion, that's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
[Corion]: Oh, a test failure... Just force-install it then? --force and potentially --notest to skip the tests alltogether ?
[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
[1nickt]: Quick survey: has anyone used or even heard of autobox?
