I'm not sure that you can do this with DB_File.pm. It looks like this module creates a DLL which I would assume needs to go into C:\winnt\system32. Note, I don't use Windows very much so you may able to install this somewhere else. But I'd guess you'd need to find a binary version or have a compiler to create it from source.
