Perl MySQL connection problem

I am trying to get a connection to mysql on localhost but having issues.
First, looks like the only DBD mysql package available for my win64 maching is DBD-mysqlPP (when searching with ppm).
I have installed the DBD-mysqlPP package successfully but when attempting a connection I get an error "#08S01Bad handshake". Any assistance would be much appreciated!  Perl newbie (duh).
Here is my perl page:

#!C:\wamp\bin\perl\bin\perl
use strict;
use warnings;
use CGI qw{ :standard };
use CGI::Carp qw{ fatalsToBrowser };
use DBI;
use DBD::mysqlPP;

# Connect to the database.
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysqlPP:database=main_db;host=localhost","","",{'RaiseError' => 1});

# HTTP HEADER
print "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\n\n";

print "hello";

Your code does not match the example on the man page: http://search.cpan.org/dist/DBD-mysqlPP/mysqlPP.pm  In addition, I have never seen any connection to MySQL that would work without a username.  Look in the config for phpMyAdmin to find out what it's using.
