in thread Where do I put libgd?

Your assertion regarding libgd being contained by Strawberry perl is undoubtedly true for 5.18.2, but the questioner is asking about 5.16.3 - is it true for that version as well ? Given the observed problem, that self-evidently isn't true, so that isn't of much use to the OP.

That being said, a quick google for libgd strawberry perl came up with this as the second hit.

UPDATE:

Added google search result.

    That was my first thought, too ... but Strawberry 5.16.3 *does* provide GD-2.49 (according to http://strawberryperl.com/release-notes/5.16.3.1-64bit.html).

    And then there's the question of the missing gdlib-config. Strawberry 5.18.2 provides gdlib-config.bat, and I would've expected 5.16.3 to do the same (unverified).
    I'm actually wondering whether the OP is, in fact, running Strawberry Perl.

    Anyway ... if it's Strawberry Perl, then the OP should already have GD installed, and if it's ActivePerl then installing via PPM should work:
    ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/GD.ppd --force
    Cheers,
    Rob
      Now why did I not think of looking at the release notes for 5.16.3 ... errm, that'll be because I never thought of it 'til you mentioned it :-) Doh!!!

      On the PPM front, it's been some while since I had to put up with Windoze, but from what I could remember, I guessed that PPM would be best way for AS.
