Get it here! Perl DBD::Sybase 1.09 for Active State Perl 5.10 on Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit

Assuming that you installed Sybase OpenClient 15.5 from the 15.5 PC Client:

Install ActiveState Perl from http://www.activestate.com (free) and install DBI if it isn’t already installed.  It should be but you never know…

  1. Start -> ActiveState Perl -> Perl Package Manager
  2. install DBI
  3. exit

Now, the easy part.  Install the DBD::Sybase 1.09 PPM:

  1. download DBD::Sybase 1.09 PPM
  2. extract zip file to temporary directory (e.g. c:\test)
  3. Start -> Run -> cmd.exe (as Administrator if Vista or Windows 7)
  4. cd \test
  5. ppm install DBD-Sybase.ppd
  6. exit

That’s it :)

    Jason, I get a ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform. Any ideas what is wrong?

      Most likely, that means that your Perl is not Active State Perl 5.10 on Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit .

      Look at the output of perl -v, and see whether it is Perl 5.10. For me, this outputs

      This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 1 (v5.12.1) built for MSWin32-x +86-multi-thread Copyright 1987-2010, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License + or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source ki +t.
