Subject: Cannot install DBD::Oracle on Win7 laptop with Oracle Instant Client installed on it
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 982b
Laptop has version 5.12.3 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread of Strawberry perl installed on it. When Makefile.PL is run, the result is: *** Warning: whitespace characters in the current directory path (C:/Users/mnoonan/My Documents/strawberry perl/DBD-Oracle-1.28) may cause problems Using DBI 1.616 (for perl 5.012003 on MSWin32-x86-multi-thread) installed in C:/strawberry/perl/vendor/lib/auto/DBI/ Configuring DBD::Oracle for perl 5.012003 on MSWin32 (MSWin32-x86-multi- thread) Remember to actually *READ* the README file! Especially if you have any problems. Installing on a MSWin32, Ver#5.1 Using Oracle in c:/ora11gx32/11.2.0/instant DEFINE _SQLPLUS_RELEASE = "1102000100" (CHAR) Oracle version 11.2.0.1 (11.2) OCI directory not found, please install OCI in c:/ora11gx32/11.2.0/instant at makefile.pl line 241. Thanks in advance for your help in resolving the above problem. A key perl script that we need to run cannot run until DBD::Oracle is installed.

The issue is as the warning says: whitespace in the pathnames. I'd suggest installing both the Oracle client and DBD::Oracle in directories without spaces in the names. Cheers, Marc On Sun Jun 19 17:28:47 2011, ddEpic wrote: Show quoted text

I answered this on perl monks yesterday at http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=910489 I'm not sure if there is a problem with DBD::Oracle and paths with spaces. I guess someone should look in to it as these paths generally need to be quoted. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK

Dennis, can you tell us how you got on when not using a path without spaces. Martin -- Martin J. Evans Wetherby, UK
