First: thanks for providing some support that actually helped a bit. the first line worked, second failed with the erros listed below. I know that there is a version error here, but i thought this is how i got around this problem once before.... any suggestions?

I am using 5:10.0 active perl

when i tried
C:\Perl\bin>perl -MCPAN -e "install DBD::mysql"

<truncated> Going to build C/CA/CAPTTOFU/DBD-mysql-4.011.tar.gz

For 'make test' to run properly, you must ensure that the
database user '' can connect to your MySQL server
and has the proper privileges that these tests require such
as 'drop table', 'create table', 'drop procedure', 'create procedure'
as well as others.

mysql> grant all privileges on test.* to ''@'localhost' identified by 's3kr1t';

You can also optionally set the user to run 'make test' with:

perl --testuser=username

perl Makefile.PL --cflags=-I<dir>

to set this directory. For details see the INSTALL.html file,
section "C Compiler flags" or type

perl Makefile.PL --help
