Actually something along these lines would make sense to me, because i suspect some sort of problem with the fact that my windows being a 64bit system.
One of the differences between 64bit and 32bit is of course the different return values for the sizeof() function in c.I think if one is not careful there, some code segment could easily work like a charm on windows 32bit but cause serious problems on windows 64bit.
I installed the DBI- and DBD:ODBC-packages using something like cpan install DBI calling the cpan.bat from the 64bit-installation of strawberry perl (again 5.18.1).
So i thought the packages beeing installed should definetly be working on windows 64bit. But maybe this is just not necessarily the case?It is a fresh perl-installation and the only thing i added were the two mentioned packages and the Modern:Perl-package to test the code suggested above.
