in thread Help required installing LibXML Parser

That is a strange result - it suggests that some of the configuration information in your Perl installation has some values probably set from the machine where it was built, and hence don't necessarily match your system. That may be contributing to the problem. What happens when you run:
C:\> set PERL_DL_DEBUG=1 C:\> perl -MXML::LibXML -e "print 1"
Also, what happens if you place libxml2.dll in the same subdirectory as Common.dll, which is used by XML::LibXML::Common?

    the common.dll is present in C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread/auto/XML/LibXML/Common/ folder

    Also i tried placing the libxml2.dll in the same folder as common, but still i get the same error!

    Just for the record, below are the list of files i have
    C:\Program Files\Rational\Common\lib\perl5\site_perl\5.6.1\MSWin32-x86 +-multi-thread\auto\XML „₯„Ÿ„Ÿ„ŸLibXML „  „ „  „  LibXML.dll „  „  LibXML.exp „  „  LibXML.lib „  „  LibXML.pdb „  „  „  „€„Ÿ„Ÿ„ŸCommon „ „  Common.dll „  Common.exp „  Common.lib „  Common.pdb „  „₯„Ÿ„Ÿ„ŸNamespaceSupport „€„Ÿ„Ÿ„ŸSAX

    And libxml2.dll is placed in
    C:\Program Files\Rational\Common\libxml2.dll
    i hope this could throw some light!
      I'm afraid I'm a bit stumped - everything above looks OK. Just to see if it might be a binary incompatibility problem with your version of Perl, could you try installing the GD module; the ppm sources GD.tar.gz are again at After installation, does
      C:\> perl -MGD -e "print 1"
        will do it on monday (@ work pc) and will update. Thanks a lot once again
        Nope got the following error
        U:\>cqperl -MGD -e "print 1" Extracting -e (with variable substitutions) Can't locate loadable object for module GD in @INC (@INC contains: C:/ +Program Fi les/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/5.6.1/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread C:/Progra +m Files/Ra tional/Common/lib/perl5/5.6.1 C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/per +l5 C:/Prog ram Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/MSWin32-x86-multi- +thread C:/ Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 C:/Program Fil +es/Rationa l/Common/lib/perl5/site_perl C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl +5/site_per l/5.6.1/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/ +perl5/site _perl/5.6.1 C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at + -e line 0 Compilation failed in require.

        i just copied the files to the C:/Program Files/Rational/Common/lib/perl5/site _perl/5.6.1 folder
