I've installed Bugzilla a few times in the past on Microsoft machines in the past, never really had any problems. I came to setup bugzilla on a Windows 2003 R2 64-bit machine, already running IIS 6, MySQL 5.0 64 bit, windows setups are pretty simple from the Installing Bugzilla on Microsoft Windows instructions provided.

Grabbed a 64 bit version of active perl, installed and worked fine from IIS, however when running the checksetup.pl I could not get "ppm> install DBD-mysql" to work at all. When I manually specified theory58S package URL manually the penny dropped with platform architecture not supported.

After some hunting around, found this post summerising what I had suspected.

Long and short of it use the Perl 32 bit version from active perl for Bugzilla because the 64bit ActiveState version does not appear to support the DBD-mysql.

When running checksetup ignore the OCI.DLL not found unless you plan to use Oracle instead of mysql.

Noting there might be a 64bit version of DBD-mysql available for windows & active perl somewhere but this solved my problem quickly. -- Adam Kett
