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\ +Win32_MSVC.pm cp build/Wx/build/MakeMaker/Win32.pm blib\lib\Wx\build\MakeMaker\Win32 +.pm cp Wx.pm blib\lib\Wx.pm D:\MyPrograms\Technical\Perl\Dwimperl\perl\bin\perl.exe script/wxperl_ +overload cpp\ovl_const.cpp cpp\ovl_const.h overload.lst Writing 'cpp\ovl_const.h'.

What to do?

Many TIA - Helen

    Strawberry already has a C compiler, so I'm not sure you needed to install another one.

    "dmake: Error: -- `D:\MyPrograms\Technical\Perl\Dwimperl\perl\lib\ExtUtils\xsubpp' not found, and can't be made"

    Try:

    cpan ExtUtils::ParseXS

    Update: If you're actually using DWIM perl it claims to ship with Wx already installed: README.

      marto: thank you. Indeed, I ran this test program:

      use strict; use warnings; use 5.014; use DBI; use Encode; use Wx; say 'Testing Wx'; 1;

      and it didn't issue errors. I'll start using Wx and report if I encounter problems.

      Many thanks - Helen
