Error Using Module Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX

roho has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am running Strawberry Perl 5.24 on Windows 10. I installed module "Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX". The module installed with no errors. When I "use" the module, the following error message is displayed:
Can't load 'D:/perl/vendor/lib/auto/XML/Parser/Expat/Expat.xs.dll' for + module XML::Parser::Expat load_file:The specified module could not be found at D:/perl/lib/DynaL line 193. at D:/perl/vendor/lib/XML/ line 18. The error is definitely occurring in 'D:/perl/vendor/lib/XML/ +' line 18, which has "require XML::Parser::Expat;" in a BEGIN block. +Running perl -MXML::Parser::Expat -e 0 produces the same error messag +e.
I double-checked module "XML::Parser::Expat" by running cpan install on it, and it says the module is up to date.
The path and file 'D:/perl/vendor/lib/auto/XML/Parser/Expat/Expat.xs.dll' exist, so it's not clear why the above error message is displayed.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

    Expat.xs.dll depends on other dlls, like c\bin\libexpat-1_.dll, if for some reason those dlls cant be found in your %PATH%, then loading Expat.xs.dll will fail

      That fixed the problem! Thank you very much.
