in reply to Win32:OLE errors when running same code on Windows XP

Hi,

If the directoy trees of the old and new boxes match, and if the programs in the direcotries are all the same, I would assume there is a problem with the setup of the new Perl.

I would try re-installing the Win32::ole stuff looking for any error. If that doesn't help, try installing Perl 5.14 to try and match your old setup exactly.

If it still doesn't work, do it all again until it does.

J.C.

    Indeed when I've installed Win32::OLE I noticed some complaints that a few modules couldn't be installed, since Win32::OLE needs Visual C compiler, and StrawberryPerl has gcc.

    But I noticed the same warnings when I had installed the original system on the Windows 7 system, and there there are no problems. Those modules are not mainstream anyway.

      I just double-checked Strawberry Perl's web site. According the release notes, versions 5.14.2.1 and 5.16.0.1 (in both 32-bit and 64-bit) already include Win32::OLE. As a further check, I downloaded the portable versions and they all have Win32::OLE.

      Also, the latest version of Win32::OLE was released in 2008. That means versions 5.14.2.1 and 5.16.0.1 of Strawberry Perl would have the latest version of the module.

      Based on that information, is there a reason that you're trying to reinstall Win32::OLE in your Strawberry Perl installations?

        dasgar: Thanks for your effort.

        I didn't re-install it. As far as I recollect, I asked cpanp to install it, and I think it came back quickly and said: "already installed".
