Xampp Perl

Hi, I'm trying to get some Perl scripts running on my XAMPP server. I am running XAMPP 1.7.1 on Windows XP, and have installed xampp-win32-perl-addon-5.10.0-2.2.11-pl2-installer.exe

  2. XAMPP is the most popular PHP development environment XAMPP is a completely free, easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP, and Perl. The XAMPP open source package has been set up to be incredibly easy to install and to use.

Specifically, I am having trouble with MySQL integration. In the point in my script where I reference DBI, the server throws this 500 error:
install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load 'C:/xampp/perl/site/lib//auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.dll' for module DBD::mysql: load_file:The specified module could not be found at C:/xampp/perl/lib/DynaLoader.pm line 203. at (eval 60) line 3 Compilation failed in require at (eval 60) line 3. Perhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected at C:/xampp/htdocs/0perldev/Sessionmgr.pm line 46 ,
Xampp perl installNote the double slash in the path to mysql.dll. The DLL is where it should be, I believe the double slash is a bug in some loader library. So far I'm pretty happy with the PHP behavior in XAMPP, but it's a little scary that Perl a) doesn't work fresh out of the box and b) seems to be buggy.

Xampp Php Not Working

Any thoughts on how to fix this? Do I need to file a bug report?
