Can't build XML-Parser-2.34

ecuster2000 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

I am working on a Windows 2003 32bit Server with Perl 5.8.8 and I am trying to build and install XML-Parser-2.34. I have downloaded the latest Expat-2.0.0. I added "D:\Expat-2.0.0\Libs" to my PATH and Lib PATH and I added "D:\Expat-2.0.0\Source\lib" to my include path (Not sure if that is correct).

When I go to build XML-Parser-2.34 I recieve some warnings, but no errors. When I test the build everything fails. Here is a sample of the failure messages:

Thank you for any help that some one can provide.

    Something must have gone wrong during the nmake part of the build-process. What is the output of that step?

        I don't know if this will help or not. I've recently been installing XML::Parser and expat on Solaris, so it's different, but before I ran make, I had to edit the Makefile.PL file to add the $expat_libpath and $expat_incpath variables:

        $expat_libpath = 'path/to/expat/lib'; $expat_incpath = 'path/to/expat/include';

        I don't know if that will help you or not, but it's worth looking at.

        Cheers,

        Brent

    Does it help if you add D:\Expat-2.0.0\Libs to your PATH environment variable, so as the dlls are found?

    I have to ask, since you don't specify: are you using ActiveState perl? Is there any reason you're not using ActiveState perl, and ppm to install the module?
      I don't see XML-Parser in ppm to install it that way. Is there some reason why it is not there?

        PPMs for XML::Parser may be found here. You could try, for example, typing ppm install http://trouchelle.com/ppm/XML-Parser.ppd at a command prompt and see if that works for you.

        HTH,

        Kobes also has XML-Parser, and not only that, but a guide to what other repositories have it.
        XML::Parser is part of the ActivePerl distribution. It's needed by the PPM script, so if ppm works then you already have XML::Parser.
