in reply to cpan install error for Win32::Registry

In the documentation, it says: obsolete, use Win32::TieRegistry. Why don't you use the recommended library instead?

    I'm trying to use existing code modules in 3rd party code that depend on Win32::Registry, and I dont think TieRegistry is backward compatible. So its not just a matter of making manual changes to the Registry, and I'm not inclined to muck up the 3rd party code.

    I tried downloading the cpan module, and applying the patch manually, but so far havent figured out how to install the modified tarball. tried "cpan ." with the tarball in the current directory, but thats obviously not correct.

      figured it out. just unwound the tarball, applied the patch, and then ran "cpan ." in the parent dir. seemed to work, and the 3rd party script finds the module. thanks.
