Hi I am running Strawberry Perl 5.10.0 final on Windows XP. I have had great success at installing many modules via cpan but not with DBD::mysql My cpan session output was... cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9205) ReadLine support enabled

You'd need to set the path to MySQL like this: perl Makefile.PL --with-mysql=c:\mysql Then it works correctly. Newer strawberries all bundle DBD::mysql -- Mike
