Install Perl DBI on WIN XP

Hello,
I need to install Perl DBI at my work place. There is firewall that do not allow me to do it remotely.
Can you provide me with a location of the DBI module for download and instructions on how to install it?
Many thanks,
Tamir

On windows, you will likely want pre-compiled drivers.  You can download most of them from ActiveState:
http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Downloads/ActivePerl/PPM/

Once you download the ppd and module, install it by running this at a command prompt:
    ppm install <ppd_filename>

Actually, if you install ActivePerl from www.activestate.com, you don't need to install the DBI module since it's part of the core modules. You can download the installer from any other place and store it into a USB flash memory and later install it anywhere you need to, without having the need of an Internet connection.

Cheers,

Paco

Hello,
I have on my machine 5.8 and I need please location to download the appropriate DBI for it (I already have DBD-Oracle).
On the 5.8 installation DBI is not included.

Are you using Active Perl from Active State? You can check this by typing on command prompt (assuming this is the correct path):

C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe -v

You should already have it, but if not, you can get it from here:
