32-bit Perl installation on windows 2008 server R2

Posted by gmoog on 2010-11-03 10:55

dbd-oracle is not supplied with 64-bit ActiveStatePerl. It looks like it can be compiled but requires MS Visual Studio Ultimate(12k license cost).
Can 32-bit ActiveStateperl be loaded on windows server 2008 R2(64-bit) which should already have dbd-oracle bundled into ppm??

Yes we are running 32bit Perl 5.6.0 build on Windows Server R2 2008 64bit. Some of the processes like .bat files had to be changed to .cmd files. When we run a remote command this is important as a .bat will not run, where a .cmd will.
