in reply to How to install pp, Wx module in 64 bit windows7 system

To build on one of the earlier posts, I recommend that you switch from using whatever Perl distribution you currently have to Strawberry Perl. That distribution is shipped with the same version of the compiler that was used to build Perl in the first place. There is a 64-bit version, which means that you will natively be using the correct environment whenever you need to install (and compile) something using CPAN simply by running  perl -MCPAN -e "install My::Desired::Module"

    Actually here with me its impossible to install Wx, padre etc on Strawberry 5.16.2. There is no way getting it installed on the machine as it seems. The problem might actually be a pre-installed incompatible compiler coming with preinstalled visual studio components. But that in itself I cant imagine being the case. Tried on two diffent machines and in one I managed to install. Not on the other thoogh. Exact same procedure.

      ... didn't work ...

      And then?
