I don't think that's a question of path, as you are telling us that you
checked that, and that the file was there.
Actually, I think this is a compilation problem, between mod_perl and perl
itself (Apache has nothing to do with that right now).

I'm running under Windows as well, and I made extensive tests, to find out
which version of mod_perl.so is working with which version of perl58.dll.
(hoping that you didn't forget to load this latter one in your httpd.conf,
before mod_perl.so !)

I suppose that, as a Win32 user, you're using the ActivePerl distribution?
If this is the case, then, I suggest that you use and install the latest
version of Perl (v5.8.8) with the latest version of mod_perl (including
among others mod_perl.so). You can use the ppm utility to check for your
versions and/or update accordingly.
