in reply to Windows 2000 Server and Installing Perl

1. what does perl -v report? It should be something around v5.6.1, not 5.00(34).
2. If possible, use PPM instead of CPAN; activestate's put quite a bit of effort into making sure non-pure perl modules work well on windows and sometimes the versions on cpan won't compile correctly (at least, using gcc & nmake, ime). Most of the time, this clears up module install problems on windows.

    thanks, i will try again using the PPM. For some reason if i could remember correctly that the PPM had an older version of the DBI which was the reason why I went to cpan for it, when I originally downloaded onto my pc here. Said i needed a minimum version, but I guess it should work with the 5.004 version now.. so I will retry and use that. As far as the 'perl -v', yes i did do that and I thought i would get the v5.6...also. But I'll give it one more try.. play around a bit more..see what happens.
    Thank you.
