Description:
There is no Perl distribution for Windows at URL http://www.mysql.com/downloads/os-win32.html. Perhaps it has been moved?

How to repeat:
1. Go to http://www.mysql.com/downloads/os-win32.html
2. Look for a PERL distribution for Windows
3. Verify there is no PERL distribution

Suggested fix:
Add the PERL distribution for Windows so users can have access to the DBI module for MySQL.

Sorry we don't provide the Perl distribution for Windows.
However a simple search in our site like: Perl for Windows
you get the URL for the instructions for:

Installing ActiveState Perl on Windows
Installing the MySQL Perl Distribution on Windows
APIs
Perl Installation Comments
MySQL Perl API

Also you find them in the Manual shipped with the Windows
releases.
