I just installed Test::Simple 0.98 for a package that is dependent on Test::More 0.98:

But when I try the install of the dependent package it complains:

Warning: prerequisite Test::More 0.98 not found. We have 0.96.

So then I go looking an find Test::More is installed in both lib and site\lib:

C:\perl64>attrib /s A I C:\perl64\cpan\build\BerkeleyDB-0.43-qD7hPx\t\Test\More.p +m A I C:\perl64\cpan\build\ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62-sv1XY8\t\lib +\Test\ A R I C:\perl64\lib\Test\ <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< A I C:\perl64\packages\BerkeleyDB-0.43\t\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\DB_File-1.820\db-5.1.19\lang\perl\Berk +eleyDB\t\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.50\t\lib\Test\Mor A R I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.94\blib\lib\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.94\lib\Test\ A R I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.96\blib\lib\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.96\lib\Test\ A R I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.98\blib\lib\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\Test-Simple-0.98\lib\Test\ A I C:\perl64\packages\Win32-Unicode-0.24\inc\Test\ A R I C:\perl64\site\lib\Test\ <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Looking inside the two more.pms, the lib is 0.98 and site\lib is 0.96.

Which means site\lib overrides lib?

And why has it suddenly started installing itself in a different place?
