( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear esteemed Monks

I an running Strawberry Perl 5.14.2 on severl PC's (on Windows). On two of them (one running XP SP3, the other Win7 64b) CPANP works fine, and usually, I install a module this way (assume the module is called: "ModuleX"):

cpanp CPAN Terminal>m ModuleX CPAN Terminal>i 5

(in case the second command resulted in a list where ModuleX was number 5).

The problem is, after installing Strawberry Perl on yet another Win7 PC, when going:

CPAN ternimal>m ModuleX

It returns with the following error:

CPAN Terminal> m ModuleX [ERROR] DBI connect('dbname=D:\MyPrograms\Technical\Perl\Dwimperl\cpan +plus\db.sql','',...) failed: unable to open database file at :/MyPrograms/Technical/Perl/Dwimperl/p +erl/lib/CPANPLUS/Internals/Source/ line 48

Notes: 1. I did run the console with administrator prvileges;

2. The file db.sql is indeed not there.

What to do?

Many TIA - Helen
