[Win32]Alien-wxWidgets-0.67 manual installby EigenFunctions (Sexton)
|on Dec 30, 2016 at 16:48 UTC||Need Help??|
EigenFunctions has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
My ultimate goal is to create eForms for use in the lab. Instead of paper forms that have to be manually transcribed to text files (an error prone process), I want to use Perl. I have used Win32::GUI in the past, but placing the components on the screen is manual. wxGlade seems like a super way to create Perl code for custom eForms. The wxGlade code that's created needs wxPerl and wxPerl needs wxWidgets.
Therein lies the problem -- installing wxWidgets.
I use Strawberry Perl (v5.22.0) under win7 (SP1) and there doesn't seem to be an install package available. I very seldom do manual installations because I am not at all familiar with the process (I am a user of Perl, not a designer of modules). But I tried to manually install it anyway using the Alien-wxWidgits (v0.67) module. After compiling (gcc, x86_64-posix-sjlj, built by strawberryperl.com project, 4.9.2) for about 40mins it terminates with the message:"Unable to find setup.h directory at inc/My/Build/Win32.pm line 122."
I've retried several times (deleting the more than 100MB of over 10,000 files created) with several variations, but the results were the same.
Out of desperation, I installed wxMSW-3.1.0-Setup which has wxWidgets. I then tried to install wxPerl, but get the message:
I'm actually not surprised it didn't work.
I tried setting "set WXDIR=" to point to wxMSW folder and I tried setting "set WXDIR=" to point to the compiled wxWidgets folder. Both failed with error messages, after running the build sequence.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
