in reply to Re^2: Puzzling error when using ActivePerl. (no 5.18.1 ppm repositories exist
in thread Puzzling error when using ActivePerl.

The problem is that the install presets the repository to http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x64/5.18/1800/package.xml, but that does not exist.

And according to this page(scroll to bottom), there are currently no repositories available for 5.18.anything on any platform.

    Then you better switch to Strawberry Perl.

      Because I corrected your unresearched "answer" to the OPs question; *I* have to change the version of Perl I use?

      .erk!

        Oh, BrowserUK, don't take everything so personal. I meant a general *you*. You (personal "you" this time) may use any version of Perl you fancy. :)
