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

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".
