I am running Perl on 32-bit Windows 2003 server and when I go into PPM and search for DBD-ODBC the package is found but it can't install. THe error I get is:

DBD-ODBC marked for install
Installing package ...
Downloading DBD-ODBC-1.13 ... not found
Installing package failed

ERROR: 404 Not Found

Does anyone know where I can download DBD-ODBC so I can connect to my databases via perl?

You can always download the zip file for it and install it using PPM.

The zip file you are looking for can be found at:
(This info was copied from ActivePerl 822 help)

Using Zip Files
As an alternate method for installing packages, you can download zip files for the packages that you need from To use these files:

Unzip the package to a temporary directory.
Install the package by specifying the ppd file directly:
ppm install c:\tmp\module-name.ppd
Some modules have dependencies that may cause them to fail to install if those packages are not available in a repository that PPM is connected to. You can use the ppm describe command to see what dependencies the package has, but those packages may have their own dependencies.
