perldough has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am new to Perl, new to these forums, but an old-time programmer at heart.
I have just inherited a half-complete Perl project at work. The single person developing the program was using the following setup: Windows XP, installed Active Perl 5.12, and added many modules and extensions on top of that installation.
He said that he copied his C:\Perl directory to a virtual machine containing a fresh install of XP (same location in the virtual machine). He then changed the user path variable in the virtual machine to include 'C:\Perl\bin;C:\Perl\site\bin'. He then ran his program and all was fine. He suggested that I do the same.
I have done this on the work computer equipped with XP, my personal computer equipped with Vista and another virtual machine equipped with a (not so fresh) install of XP. In all of these cases, I get this nebulous error message:
If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks in advance,
