Now it cannot find the taglib libraries ...

The dll needs to be in the path. Options for making the import lib (taglib.a) locatable include:

1) placing it in C:/strawberry/c/lib
2) setting the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to its location (set LIBRARY_PATH=C:\wherever\it\is).

Similarly, if there are taglib headers that need to be found you can:

1) place them in C:/strawberry/c/include
2) set the CPATH environment variable to their location (set CPATH=C:\wherever\they\are).

Not sure if the "LIBRARY_PATH" approach will work on your strawberry. It depends upon which version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker you have.
The "CPATH" solution should work fine on all versions of strawberry.

    Dunno if this will help, but it might...

    Assuming that the code 129 is the OS return code from a program dmake is trying to run, then:

    C:\test>perl -E" say $^E = 129" The %1 application cannot be run in Win32 mode

    Which kind of suggests that a 32-bit program is trying to load a 64-bit dll.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
