in thread Net::Pcap installation help (and not with the library)

1. No I didn't move the installation from the default c:\strawberry - should I have?

2. Yes that folder exists

3. No MSVC++ is not installed on either machine (*yet*)

Could permissions be an issue?

    What are the results of:

    perl -v perl -V:cc perl -V:make path

    on each machine?

        What's in C:\Perl and subdirectories that show up in your path.? Do you have Activestate ActivePerl installed on both these machines also?

        When I run the commands, I get:

        vincen_m@C:\Users\vincen_m> perl -V:make make='dmake'; vincen_m@C:\Users\vincen_m> perl -V:cc cc='gcc';

        The "Set up gcc environment - gcc.exe..." stuff you get on the laptop seem indicative of a Perl installation (non-Strawberry) finding the gcc compiler in your path. I've seen this before when I used to use MinGW installed separately and ActivePerl. Strawberry runs much smoother with the "built-in" C (gcc / dmake) in the distribution.

        UPDATE: In fact, you are running ActivePerl, not Strawberry on the Laptop at least as indicated by the line "Binary build 1601 296175 provided by ActiveState http://www.ActiveState.com".

        Start with a clean slate. Uninstall all versions of Perl on one system. Start with a fresh install of Strawberry 5.16 for your architecture. Try the process I recommended in Re: Net::Pcap installation help (and not with the library).
