    Hello Anonymous,

    an (apparently pretty common) error is that you use a (bugged?) version of the module Alien-wxWidgets together with ActiveStatePerl.
    I first tried 0.43 from CPAN together with ActiveStatePerl and that didn't work.
    Although someone said that 0.43 works fine with StrawberryPerl, I'm not sure about that. I did some "research" on the web and someone said that you should use 0.39.
    I deleted the 0.43 version and installed the 0.39-one => everything workes fine.
    If you have another error, a little bit more information would be useful ;)


      Damn, forgot to log in, sorry about that ;( Greetings, Shinama

      Seconding the recommendation for Strawberry Perl; I've been using ActiveState (sporadically) and it failed the CPAN installation of Wx, so I loaded Strawberry and it worked with no further ado.

    For the benefit of PerlMonks users: if you install DWIM Perl, it already includes Wx. (I have one Windows machine like that).

    Alternatively, with Strawberry Perl (and cpanp), I have installed Wx with no problems, (on another Windows machine).
    I had been using Win32::GUI, but it seems that it does not support Unicode, so I had to turn to another GUI system on Perl, and I chose wxWidgets.
