Hi,
Thank you for the response.
After running : perl Makefile.PL

DBI version 1.51 required--this is only version 1.50 at Makefile.PL line 21.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 21.
which means that i need to upgrade the DBI version that comes out of the box. Can you please assist me with that? i normally use the active state PPM one for those operation on windows...
Many thanks

Tamir

Try to install it cpan (simpler) or download the gzipped package from CPAN site (as you did for Oracle DBD and do the same procedure as above.

To install using cpan shell:

cpan<ENTER>

You get get the cpan shell prompt. At the shell prompt:

install DBI<ENTER>
