in reply to Re^3: @INC site/lib problem on Windows 7 and XP (ActiveState Perl)
in thread @INC site/lib problem on Windows 7 and XP (ActiveState Perl)

I set the path to <drive-letter>:/activestate/perl/5.10/
I suspect something went wrong in this GUI over-ride of the path. Active State "likes" to install into C:\Perl. I have seen this install into other directories. Use the GUI to navigate to the installation directory. I would create this non-standard c:|d:\activestate\perl\5.10 directory prior to running the install.

Sorry that I cannot help further. It is possible to install Active State into a non-standard directory and I've seen it done. Maybe there is something a bit strange about Win7?? I think that is highly likely.
