ActivePerl Install on XP Pro Fails

Posted by Mark I on 2007-02-12 11:14

Hello, I need some help troubleshooting a failed install on an XP SP2 machine. When I try to run the install, it gets all the way to the end and then fails, with the following error in the App Event log. Anyone know what this script is and why it might be failing?
