in reply to Building a module from CPAN on a Win32 machine.

AFAIK, perl514.dll is called from perl.exe or perl5.14.1.exe or such.

Search for perl*.exe on your harddisk and manually delete it.

Then uninstall AS Perl 5.16.2 and re-install it. Make sure you have administrator rights when you do all of this.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
