Hi, I posted this bug on metacpan, and someone was kind enough to redirect me to you, though I am not 100% sure it is solely a DBD::Pg bug. My original post is here: https://github.com/metacpan/metacpan-web/issues/2266 But here is the full thread again: ============================================================================================== * troogyt <https://github.com/troogyt> * commented 1 hour ago <https://github.com/metacpan/metacpan-web/issues/2266#issue-561974903> Cannot install DBD::Pg using cpan as every time it looks for LIBPQ.dll it cannot find it. I ran Sysinternals Process Monitor and can see it appears to be looking for LIBPQ.dll in the wrong place: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath_target_3326048396\LIBPQ.dll" I have no idea why java has anything to do with this, but I definitely do have PostgreSQL 12 installed and LIBPQ.dll is located here: "C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\bin\libpq.dll" I think the CPAN installer must be compiling the directory path using incorrect input variables or something.

Thanks for the report: I have no idea offhand what is going on, but will try to dig into it later. For now, don't worry about the test database (testdb) or things like the port as we are not getting far enough to even use those.

Any chance you could make a documentation patch to help out other Windows users? The README.win32 file could really use some attention, but I'm strictly *nix at this point in life.

Hi Greg, I must confess I have never actually done that before as I am not strictly a programmer - this would be my first time, so I am not 100% sure of how to do it. I would gladly do it if I knew how, but I am an infant when it comes to professional development tools, techniques and source code repository management. Where the existing METACPAN README page for DBD::Pg (here <https://metacpan.org/source/TURNSTEP/DBD-Pg-3.10.5/README>) reads: ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ... * Strawberry Perl issues: You'll need to create a .a library from the .dll before running the Makefile.PL, by running pexports and dlltool as shown below, within the C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin directory: pexports libpq.dll > libpq.def dlltool -dllname libpq.dll --def libpq.def --output-lib ..\lib\libpq.a Then you'll need to set the required environment: set PATH=C:\PROGRA~1\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin;%PATH% set DBI_DSN=dbi:Pg:dbname=testdb set DBI_USER=*PostgreSQL username* set DBI_PASS=*PostgreSQL password* set POSTGRES_HOME=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3 set POSTGRES_INCLUDE=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3/include set POSTGRES_LIB=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3/lib Note that the username and password are the ones for PostgreSQL, NOT the ones for the Windows account that the PostgreSQL installer creates to run the service safely. ... ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ I think changing it to this would help: ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ... * Strawberry Perl issues: You'll need to create a .a library from the .dll before running the Makefile.PL, by running pexports and dlltool as shown below, within the C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin directory: C:\Windows\> C:\MinGW\bin\pexports libpq.dll > libpq.def C:\Windows\> C:\MinGW\bin\dlltool -dllname libpq.dll --def libpq.def --output-lib "C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\12\lib\libpq.a" pexports and dlltool are included with MinGW - Minimalist Gnu for Windows, found here: https://osdn.net/projects/mingw/releases/ Once you have installed MinGW you can install pexports and dlltool as follows: C:\Windows\> C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get.exe install pexports C:\Windows\> C:\MinGW\bin\mingw-get.exe install dlltool Then you'll need to set the required environment: set PATH=C:\PROGRA~1\PostgreSQL\8.3\bin;%PATH% set DBI_DSN=dbi:Pg:dbname=testdb set DBI_USER=*PostgreSQL username* set DBI_PASS=*PostgreSQL password* set POSTGRES_HOME=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3 set POSTGRES_INCLUDE=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3/include set POSTGRES_LIB=C:/PROGRA~1/PostgreSQL/8.3/lib Note that the username and password are the ones for PostgreSQL, NOT the ones for the Windows account that the PostgreSQL installer creates to run the service safely. ... ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ Kind regards, Steve On Tue, 24 Mar 2020 at 02:40, Greg Sabino Mullane via RT < bug-DBD-Pg@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
