in reply to Muliple perl installation sucks!

None of the other installations show 5.12.3 as a version. Did you upgrade Strawberry Perl and then not upgrade your modules? Upgrading will *not* overwrite c:\strawberry\perl\site\... installations of modules and any XS modules installed may need to be recompiled.

What does:

assoc .pl ftype

return? Also, look at the registry key:


That should have the path of the current Perl executable.

    Thank you guys I am new to perl and trying to load some modules to work with Oracle DB such as DBI/DBD.

    My registry show: C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe

    I am not aware of what ftype does I was not able to find it. Sorry.

    I just thinking to uninstall all the Perls supplied by vendor and just keep one but scared that it might break something.

    c:\>perl -MCPAN -e shell Perl lib version (5.12.3) doesn't match executable version (v5.14.2) a +t C:\Strawberry\perl \lib/ line 50. Compilation failed in require at c:/Strawberry/perl/lib/ line 4 +3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at c:/Strawberry/perl/lib/ li +ne 43. Compilation failed in require. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
