Hi , Thanks for your response , i was installing the 'pp' module not the PAR::Packer, and it failed through CPAN i haven't tried the force option i will probably try that and see if it works.

    i was installing the 'pp' module not the PAR::Packer

    Hmmmm.....ok. Perhaps I don't know what I'm talking about, but pp is part of PAR::Packer and I personally don't know how to install pp without installing PAR::Packer, especially since the documentation of PAR::Packer states:

    Currently, this module is used by the command line tool pp internally, as well as by the contributed contrib/gui_pp/gpp program.

    Plus, it's been my experience that every time I've installed PAR::Packer, the pp utility has been installed.

    D:\temp\temp\PAR-Packer-1.013\PAR-Packer-1.013>perl Makefile.PL

    That's from your original post. Unless you modified Makefile.PL, it definitely looks like you're installing PAR::Packer to me.

    But if you still want to insist that you're installing pp and not PAR::Packer, then I think you might want to share how you're modifying the contents of PAR-Packer-1.013.tar.gz to install just pp without PAR::Packer. That will help others understand that you're needing help with your modified install instead of needing help with installing unmodified package from CPAN.

    Of course, if you feel that I have no clue about what I'm saying, please feel free to downvote my responses and/or ignore my attempts to offer assistance.

    PAR-Packer-1.013 will not install on strawberry perl - try patched version:

    http://strawberryperl.com/package/kmx/perl-modules-patched/PAR-Packer-1.013_patched.tar.gz

    --kmx

      PAR-Packer-1.013 will not install on strawberry perl - try patched version:

      Yes it will , PAR-Packer-1.013 has absolutely no problem building on 32-bit strawberryperl 5.12.3, the version the OP is using, if only the OP would stop trying to use nmake when he should be using dmake

        I think I've got the same problem as the OP. Cant figure this one out.... So how does one go about making Strawberry Perl use dmake instead of nmake?
      Thank You very much. It works
