It’s been a while but IIRC the Windows Instant Client just dumps everything 
into a single directory (at least as of the last version I installed, which 
would be 11.2) try setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH and any other needed environment 
vars to just $ORACLE_HOME.

The first step before trying to get DBI working is getting SQLPlus to work. Bet 
the LD_LIBRARY_PATH fix above fixes that as well.

Don’t forget you also need to get the additional *Instant Client Package - 
SDK", since that has the header files needed to compile DBD::Oracle.
