in thread win32::printer 5.16 will not install

Hi thanks for your help. The problem that I have is that this is above my head. I wrote the programs I use a few years back when it was easy to install and I don't really want to go backwards and install all of this over again.

I created a new file called what you suggested and put in the contents like you said and then ran this and this is what I got.

C:\>cpanp -z Win32::Printer patch -p1 -i./Win32-Printer-0.9.0-formingw.diff
Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)

Could you please give me more defined steps so that I can get this accomplished. I would be in your debt.
