Did some googling and it seems that MSSQL::sqllib hasn't been maintained in a long time. Fortunately, its creator Erland Sommarskog has written Win32::SqlServer which appears to be its replacement. This is probably what you would want to use.

You will need to have a Visual C++ compiler installed in order to install it as using the cpan command alone won't work. I think the latest Visual Studio should be ok as the latest release of Win32::SqlServer came out just last year.
