in reply to Re: installing Tk for strawberry
in thread installing Tk for strawberry

So per the Strawberry Perl recommendation I deleted version 5.10. Then I installed...

padre-on-strawberry-5.12.3.0-v5.exe

in its place. Now, none of these work...

cpan -i Tk
cpanm -i Tk
cpanp -i Tk

The cpanp looks like it worked in the console for giving no errors. But calling...

perl -e "use Tk"

...fails to locate Tk with the usual missing module complaint.

So after unzipping...

Tk-804.030.tar.gz

from CPAN and trying...

dmake

...on it, I get this result.

dmake: Parsing include file [C:\strawberry\c\bin\startup\winnt\recipe +s.mk]. dmake: Openning [C:\strawberry\c\bin\startup\winnt\mingw\recipes.mk] +for read (fail) dmake: Include file [C:\strawberry\c\bin\startup\winnt\mingw\recipes. +mk] was not found. dmake: Closing [C:\strawberry\c\bin\startup\winnt\recipes.mk] dmake: Openning [project.mk] for read (fail) dmake: Include file [project.mk] was not found. dmake: Closing [C:\strawberry\c\bin\startup\startup.mk] dmake: Openning [makefile.mk] for read (fail) dmake: Infering prerequisite(s) and recipe for [makefile.mk] dmake: Trying prerequisite [RCS\makefile.mk] for [makefile.mk] dmake: Time stamp of [makefile.mk] is 0 dmake: Openning [makefile] for read (fail) dmake: Infering prerequisite(s) and recipe for [makefile] dmake: Trying prerequisite [RCS\makefile] for [makefile] dmake: Time stamp of [makefile] is 0

Looking into the unzipped directory I find no file named...

makefile.mk

...anywhere in there. And in the console the final complaint is...

dmake: Error: -- no target

I am making my attempt from Windows Vista Ultimate where the old version of Strawberry worked okay. And the really annoying thing is I can't seem to find an install EXE for Strawberry 5.10 to go back to what I had before. I have a copy of my old strawberry directory, but just copying it back seems maybe not a good idea.
