ephemeralx has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi - I'm trying to install a module on Windows 7. The MSFT nmake link appears broken. I am unable to locate MinGW using ppm. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    What distribution (ActivePerl, Strawberry Perl, etc) and version/build (5.12, 5.14) of Perl are you using? Also, are you using 32-bit or 64-bit Perl?

    For Strawberry Perl, it already comes with MinGW and related tools needed to build modules. For 32-bit ActivePerl, you should be able to install MinGW and dmake from ActiveState's repository. I'm not familiar with all of the details, but there's more steps involved with 64-bit ActivePerl.

    Download and install "Platform SDK" from MS. It includes nmake and the MS c compiler.
