pdxperl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm on Windows 7, Strawbeery Perl version 5.18. I'm installing Test::WWW::Selenium and getting this error:
t/test_default_server.t .. # Test::WWW::Selenium running open (file:// +C:\strawbe rry\cpan\build\Test-WWW-Selenium-1.36-ZkGVDi\t\files\test_click_page1. +html) # Error requesting http://localhost:4444/selenium-server/driver/: # ERROR: Command execution failure. Please search the user group at ht +tps://grou!forum/selenium-users for error details from the +log window . The error message is: Access to 'file:///C:/strawberry/cpan/build/T +est-WWW-Se lenium-1.36-ZkGVDi/t/files/test_click_page1.html' from script denied # Failed test 'open, file://C:\strawberry\cpan\build\Test-WWW-Seleni +um-1.36-Zk GVDi\t\files\test_click_page1.html' t/test_default_server.t .. 1/7 # at t/test_default_server.t line 43. # Test::WWW::Selenium running get_text (link (?^:Click here for next p +age) link contains expected text) Error requesting http://localhost:4444/selenium-server/driver/: ERROR: Element link not found
This appears to be a known install issue I've run as administrator, doesn't make a difference. The file exists, and permissions are open for authenticated users. So if you're using Selenium, are you just doing a force install and ignoring failures, or is there a workaround? I did a force install, and am able to run some basic scripts, but I'm getting some odd errors that made me wonder if there was a real install/driver issue that was being flagged in the install testing.
