in reply to installing Tk for strawberry

I have installed Tk in strawberry 5.12.0.1 recently and didn't fined any problem.
Use latest version: Tk-804.028_503
Try manual installation if CPAN install fails. Try following:
1. Download tar.gz file
2. Extract using Winzip or 7zip
3. go to the folder "Tk-804.028_503" in command prompt
4. type: dmake
5. type: dmake test
5. type: dmake install

In my case Tk test failed. u can skip that and install directly

Re^2: 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.
