PerlMonks, win32::guitest, ActiveStatePPM... GAH

itknowles has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Little help please, Monks. I'm on a Win7 machine. I have a script I wrote using ActivePerl 5.12 that used Win32::GuiTest, which fails to install on later versions of ActivePerl (according to this-a-here thread at StackOverflow). In that same thread, a respondent suggests adding's repository to the PPM, which I do by paying meticulous attention to the instructions at Bribes, but according the PPM, there's no packages available from Bribes. So I tried uninstalling ActivePerl and installing an early version of Strawberry Perl, and then installing the package directly from CPAN. Still no luck. Alright so am I left with having to scour the dark recesses of the web for a copy of ActivePerl 5.12, or do I have other options? Thanks!

    This should work with 32-bit ActivePerl (and 32-bit Strawberry Perl):
    ppm install
    Seems there's no Win32::GuiTest package for 64-bit perls at bribes, however.

    A full list of what's available from bribes, along with the commands that will install them, can be found here for 32-bit perls and here for 64-bit perls.

[LanX]: what is the intention of your question?
[LanX]: why do you need to see the nodelet without votes left???
[marinersk]: LanX, the problem is that the lack of interface visual stability is disconcerting to me. The Nodelet appearing and disappearing is distracting, and despite over a decade, still troubles me. It jangles me.
[LanX]: I see
[marinersk]: I appear to be unusually dependent on spacial stability. I have had trouble from someone moving an object a mere four inches to the left.
[Eily]: I think the solution is to write posts so brilliant that you gain XP on each refresh, no matter how often :P
