in thread Installation instructions for Wx (wxWidgets fomerly wxWindows) using ActivePerl
ikegami: I am trying to install WxPerl, according to your instructions. I have Strawberry Perl 5.14.2 running on Windows 7.
I tried to install VC++ 2008, but it's not available, so I installed VC++ 2010 (I don't think it should be a problem (?)).
Then I went: cpan Wx
It seems to have installed:SMUELLER/ExtUtils-ParseXS-3.18.tar.gz
OK (it printed hundreds of lines, so I'm not attaching it here, unless necessary); then it went ahead to: CPAN.pm: Building M/MD/MDOOTSON/Wx-0.9917.tar.gz
and after many lines looking ok, eventually issued the following error:
cp lib/Wx/Menu.pm blib\lib\Wx\Menu.pm
cp build/Wx/build/MakeMaker/Win32_MSVC.pm blib\lib\Wx\build\MakeMaker\
cp build/Wx/build/MakeMaker/Win32.pm blib\lib\Wx\build\MakeMaker\Win32

dmake: Error: -- `D:\MyPrograms\Technical\Perl\Dwimperl\perl\lib\ExtU

dmake.EXE: Error code 255, while making 'subdirs'
D:\MyPrograms\Technical\Perl\Dwimperl\c\bin\dmake.EXE -- NOT OK
Running make install
Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
What to do?
Many TIA - Helen
