( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
These dll's have perl<version>.dll hard-coded in them, where <version> is the version of PERL that the DBI and ODBC modules were installed with.
Not quite. When those modules were compiled, they were linked against perl56.dll. Perl 5.6.x is not binary compatible with perl 5.8.x.

As for your PPM troubles, http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Downloads/ActivePerl/PPM/ says:

The PPM config file, ppm.xml, got corrupted and PPM no longer works properly.
If this occurs, a new minimal PPM config file can be generated using the 'genconfig' command at a Command Prompt:
C:\> ppm genconfig &gt; ppm.xml
The new ppm.xml should be copied to the directory Perl/site/lib. PPM should now work properly, but all information about previously installed packages will be lost.

Title:
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.
