in reply to How to successfully install DBD::Oracle?


Okay got it installed ... no thanks to clueless!
download the Oracle client
yes I also downloaded the sdk and unzipped them to 'C:\Oracle'(pun not intended). Next I set ORACLE_HOME to C:\Oracle\instantclient_21_3 as that is where the contents of the zips went. Selecting a 64 bit perl (Many THANKS to berrybrew!) I started cpanm and ... waited with bated breath.

cpanm DBD-Oracle-1.82.tar.gz
