( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi thanks for your help. The problem that I have is that this is above my head. I wrote the programs I use a few years back when it was easy to install and I don't really want to go backwards and install all of this over again.

I created a new file called what you suggested and put in the contents like you said and then ran this and this is what I got.

C:\>cpanp -z Win32::Printer patch -p1 -i./Win32-Printer-0.9.0-formingw.diff
Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)
ERROR 'patch' does not contain an author part

ERROR Cannot find 'patch' in the module tree

No such module: patch
Key 'p1' is not a valid key for CPANPLUS::Internals::Fetch::_fetch provided by C PANPLUS::Module::fetch at C:/Perl/lib/CPANPLUS/Module.pm line 580.
Microsoft Windows Version 5.2.3790
(C) Copyright 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\.cpanplus\5.16.1\build\ Win32-Printer-0.9.0>

Could you please give me more defined steps so that I can get this accomplished. I would be in your debt.
