in thread problems installing PAR::Packer (pp) on Windows 7

hi marto, i had switched to strawberry perl as default, i'm very pleased with it.
But me too i'm haveing trouble with the pp: PAR::Packer was installed only with the force install command and pp too.
Then pp result as not properly run anyway.
I found some article but i'm not sure if there is a solution.

I'll post here any progress.

L*

there are no rules, there are no thumbs..

    Strange, I run Strawberry Perl and had no problems installing pp or running the generated packages. Perhaps more details would help.

      Hello there!
      i have some done some test with this scenario: strawberry-perl-5.16.2.1-32bit-portable win7 64 bit with the important side note that with strawberry i started the prompt via portableshell.bat which assure you that strawberry bin are put before other things in your path within env.

      I also found this page that describe a solution for the 64bit version and a possible solution for the 32 bit of strawberry (changing a winres parameter): this approch (which full understanding is beyond my actual knoweledge) failed for my scenario.

      the direct install via cpan> install Par::Packer failed many tets and the installation too

      cpan> reports RSCHUPP/PAR-Packer-1.014.tar.gz reports many fails and unknows too..

      Success! succes in the installation is arrived with this commands:
      cpan> look PAR::Packer H:\straw5.16\cpan\build\PAR-Packer-1.014-lqy0Qe>perl Makefile.PL dmake -f Makefile install
      Now i have pp running normally!
      hth

        Success! succes in the installation is arrived with this commands

        Also known as
        cpan> force install PAR::Packer
        cpan> notest install Tk
        cpan -f -i PAR::Packer
        cpanp -i PAR::Packer --skiptest
        cpanm -n PAR::Packer
        cpanm --notest PAR::Packer
        cpanm -f PAR::Packer

    I am trying to install using strawberry perl, no success so far. Here is the message I get:

    pl2bat.bat blib\script\scandeps.pl Can't execute /cygdrive/c/strawberry/perl/bin/pl2bat.bat. dmake.exe: Error code 129, while making 'blib\script\scandeps.pl'

    I am running this in the standard shell, not in cygwin, so I don't get where /cygdrive comes from.

      Most likely your environment contains Cygwin tools somewhere in $ENV{PATH}. Eliminate these.

        Yes, this helped! Thanks.
