in thread ppm trouble:'no suitable installation target'

Actually, the Repository _may_ be the problem. Does the repository point to a valid 5.8 location, or does it point to a 5.6 repository? Does the repository have a DBI package for 5.8? Type rep then rep desc at a ppm prompt. Mine looks like this:

ppm> rep desc 2 Describing Active Repository 2: Name: ActiveState Package Repository Location: http://ppm.ActiveState.com/PPM/ppmserver-5.8-windows.plex?urn:/PPM/Ser +ver/SQL Type: PPMServer 3.0

If it does point to a 5.6 repository, see DigitalKitty's post above to point it to a valid 5.8 repository.

BTW, the target looks fine, except for the extra 'v' in ActivePerl (which won't make any difference).

[1nickt]: hippo You suggest this as a transport agent for Email::Sender, or ...? Just for the record Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP has SSL/TLS support built-in (and some shiny RJBS extras like "partial success" ...)
