in thread installing Perl5.14 on windows


step1: Installed Active state perl 5.14.2..
step2:Installed XML::LibXML from ppm.
step3:I downloaded xslt library from
step4: it contains four tar files(libxml,libxslt,iconv,xsldbg, zlib).
tar contains such structure..
<tarname>/bin has .exe and .dll
<tarname>/lib has .lib
<tarname>/include .h
untar and copied files under <tar>/include and <tar>/lib .lib and .h files into C:\Perl\lib\CORE, where was my other .h files.
After that I copied under <tar>/bin .exe and .dll files to "C:\Perl\site\bin" where was g++.exe and dname.exe utility....
Then I run command on cmd..
cpanm install XML::LibXSLT
I Think I am very much clear now...I have read all these steps on some blogs....i am just a novice in perl.. Thanks

    step2:Installed XML::LibXML from ppm.

    Where did you download this ppm from, didn't they have accompanying LibXSLT ppm? It would be weird if they didn't

    step3:I downloaded xslt library from

    What did you download? Give full url please

    step4 <tarname>/lib has .lib

    But does that .lib file have xsltLibxsltVersion and the other missing symbols?

      ppm repositories..
      EDIT --- ----
      I couldn't find XSLT shows ppm build fail.
      I contacted with activestate support but they are not helping much.
      This is full url where I downloaded tar mentioned by marto...
      version libxslt-1.1.26.win32 I am using... thanks

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
