Building a module from CPAN on a Win32 machine.by Anonymous Monk
|on Jan 12, 2013 at 13:16 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Ok. I uninstalled ActivePerl 5.14.1 then manually deleted the directory before I installed ActivePerl 5.16.2 on my Windows XP machine. My objective was (and is) to build several modules that are not available on the repository. When I drop into a 'cpan' shell and type:
...a message box appears that states The application failed to load because perl514.dll could not be found...
I don't know how to proceed from this point since I don't see how a module installed under version 5.14.1 could be present (assuming of course that's the problem).
Any ideas would be appreciated.
