in thread GDBM_File for Windows?

I have no compiler on this Windows machine
See Installing a make utility and C compiler on 32-bit Windows in http://www.activestate.com/blog/2010/10/how-install-cpan-modules-activeperl.
no explanation of how to integrate that
See LIBS parameter in ExtUtils::MakeMaker to specify a library path.

    I cannot install a compiler on this production server, and would (perhaps naively) hope that binaries would be available for anything needed on Windows, since Windows does not come with compilers.

      and would (perhaps naively) hope that binaries would be available for anything needed on Windows

      Well, they're not.

      Then install the compiler on a different windows computer. Then copy the files over after installing it on the other computer. Your Perl versions must be identical since XS modules are compiled to only work with the Perl they were compiled with.
