PAR-Packer-1.013 will not install on strawberry perl - try patched version:

Yes it will , PAR-Packer-1.013 has absolutely no problem building on 32-bit strawberryperl 5.12.3, the version the OP is using, if only the OP would stop trying to use nmake when he should be using dmake

    I think I've got the same problem as the OP. Cant figure this one out.... So how does one go about making Strawberry Perl use dmake instead of nmake?

      Please be more specific. Are you trying to install pp on Strawberry Perl? If so how are you trying to install it?

        Hi, Yes, I'm trying to do this via Strawberry.... here's how I go about it:
        - Open up a terminal (Start -> Run -> Open "cmd") - Then type "cpan PAR::Packer"
        It asks if I want to prepend some other dependancies, I always type "Y" and eventually crashes. The last dependancies on the list that it was trying to install were File::Spec and Perl::OSType ... Strangely enough I've managed to install PAR::Packer on a linux machine with no hassles whatsoever, but Win32 & 64 are killing me.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
