in reply to Image-Magick on Strawberry Perl

It does not tell me the build for which the PPD is intended

What was the actual command that you ran ?
The information you seek would be contained within the PPD file that was read.
Just download Image-Magick.ppd, and look at the "ARCHITECTURE NAME" entries therein.
Each "ARCHITECTURE NAME" entry will specify a supported build of perl.

    Where might I download this from and know that it is for Strawberry Perl? I found one here...

    ...but IIRC is a source for ActiveState Perl modules, is it not? Anyhow, I'll try out Strawberry Perl 5.16 and see how that goes.

      No - the Bribes' PPM packages should also work fine with *any* Windows build of perl that has the same $Config{archname} and version as specified in the PPD file (which you can grab at btw).

        I can't find the ppd at this place: ???
      SOLVED! Image-Magick installed via PPM for Strawberry Perl 5.16. So did Tk and GD-Graph.
