Get it here! Perl DBD::Sybase 1.09 for Active State Perl 5.10 on Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit

Assuming that you installed Sybase OpenClient 15.5 from the 15.5 PC Client:

Install ActiveState Perl from http://www.activestate.com (free) and install DBI if it isn’t already installed.  It should be but you never know…

  1. Start -> ActiveState Perl -> Perl Package Manager
  2. install DBI
  3. exit

Now, the easy part.  Install the DBD::Sybase 1.09 PPM:

  1. download DBD::Sybase 1.09 PPM
  2. extract zip file to temporary directory (e.g. c:\test)
  3. Start -> Run -> cmd.exe (as Administrator if Vista or Windows 7)
  4. cd \test
  5. ppm install DBD-Sybase.ppd
  6. exit

That’s it :)

  1. Thanks for this Jason.

    One question: what did you have to do to DBD::Sybase to get it compiled to a PPM package?

    I ask because I have to do this “somehow” to create a 64bit version to use on WS2008.

    Any help much appreciated (or you can just ignore me hahaha 🙂

  2. Hi I have installed Sybase with Adaptive Server Enterprise. I’ve checked and I have DBI 1.616 installed as per your instruction. I am unable to install DBD-Sybase.ppd however. I am getting the “ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install this platform.” I am not sure what I’ve done. Do I need to do something with Sybase? I’ve installed it, but perhaps I did something wrong. What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance. I am just beginning to learn Perl, actually I haven’t done any coding yet. This is why i am trying to install everything.
