( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I wanted to add a few comments that may help those who are using win64 as there are few differences:
First is the easy part, to use the 64-bit potential of your machine use the 64-bit distribution:
5.12.2: http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads

Second, with nmake being 16-bit, you'll need an alternative. Dmake should work. Its link is here:
http://search.cpan.org/dist/dmake/
After unzipping, change the enviromential variable path to include the place where dmake.exe resides.
Replace nmake with dmake. So, after unzipping the module package.

$ perl Makefile.PL<br> $ dmake<br> $ dmake test <br> $ dmake install<br>

ppm will be installed with Active State distro.

MinGW compiler is here: http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml#hdr2
Hope that helps anyone trying to install modules on top of 64-bit Active State.
