in reply to Building a module from CPAN on a Win32 machine.

AFAIK, perl514.dll is called from perl.exe or perl5.14.1.exe or such.

Search for perl*.exe on your harddisk and manually delete it.

Then uninstall AS Perl 5.16.2 and re-install it. Make sure you have administrator rights when you do all of this.

    But as fare as i remember ActivePerl installs normally in C:\Perl. All the stuff should be gone if deleting this folder... and that is what he did.

      Hi Karl.

      I'm not a male but thanks. ;)

        My pleasure ma'am ;-)

        Update: It's really curious that this gets downvoted.

        Just to remember: the preceding post was:

        "...I'm not a male but thanks. ;)..."

        And it is marked as a joke, like mine. How polite can we get?

        Best regards, Karl

      "Normally" perhaps yes, but if all went "normally" she would not have experienced these problems.

      And I am not too sure everything is in "C:\Perl" (or whichever folder you choose at install-time). AS Perl does things to your Windows registry as well, your paths and file-associations and perhaps even adds things to your "Documents and Settings".

      Recently I had some problems with my AS Komodo IDE. Uninstalling and re-installing did not solve the problem, until I saw that "Documents and Settings" had several "Komodo" folders, which were not deleted by the uninstall. I deleted them manually and re-installed and now everything works again. Maybe AS Perl saves some settings in these folders as well.

        Right. I forgot this. Please see below.

      Yes, that's the default location, but the option to override that default and install some place else is also made available.

      That's the great mystery. Perl-5.14, it's claimed, has been removed and replaced by perl-5.16 - yet the OP loads a perl.exe that needs perl514.dll. This just doesn't add up.
      (The fact that the OP hasn't replied to this thread suggests to me that the problem has already been resolved.)

      Update: Ooops ... seems she has responded, but provided no enlightenment.

      Cheers,
      Rob
