in reply to install activestate 5.10 over 5.8.9

For this to work you have to completely REMOVE one perl -- or install in another location -- this is the "safest" way

If you use the zip installer from http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/releases/ you can have multiple perls in different directories. Well, provided you edit Installer.bat before running it, so it doesn't pollute the registry

## FORGET THESE sub create_registry_entries { return warn "FORGET registry"; sub create_file_association { return warn "FORGET association"; sub create_script_mapping { return warn "FORGET IIS"; sub update_path { return warn "FORGET diddling path"; sub remove_html_shortcuts { return warn "FORGET html"; sub Set { return warn "FORGET REGISTRY ";

Also, you want to install 5.10.1 and NOT 5.10

    ... or maybe something still current (at AS, anyway) and still supported, like 5.16.n.
    If I've misconstrued your question or the logic needed to answer it, I offer my apologies to all those electrons which were inconvenienced by the creation of this post.
