in thread win32::printer 5.16 will not install

Taken from my command line: Please help, I must be doing something wrong as I am having a hard time installing it using nmake as well.

For some reason you don't appear to be reading the "error" messages

      Hi thanks for your help. The problem that I have is that this is above my head. I wrote the programs I use a few years back when it was easy to install and I don't really want to go backwards and install all of this over again.

      I created a new file called what you suggested and put in the contents like you said and then ran this and this is what I got.

      C:\>cpanp -z Win32::Printer patch -p1 -i./Win32-Printer-0.9.0-formingw.diff
      Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)
      ERROR 'patch' does not contain an author part

      ERROR Cannot find 'patch' in the module tree

      No such module: patch

      Could you please give me more defined steps so that I can get this accomplished. I would be in your debt.

        LOL!

        patch is a program you run after you run the cpanp command
