Is the Strawberry Perl c\bin directory in your path? If not then external DLLs cannot be located by the system and nothing that depends on them will work. In this case the file you refer to, mysql.xs.dll depends on libmysql__.dll. If that file is not in the path then the bindings will not work. The .xs.dll file is also the compiled XS bindings, not the mysql DLL.

If you have downloaded a portable version of Strawberry perl, which from memory is what Chocolatey distributes, then you need to run the portableshell.bat script to set up the paths, or manually prepend them to your path. This script is at the top level of the Strawberry perl distribution.

(Edited a few minutes after posting to clarify reference to .xs.dll file.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
