Hello All,

Here is my problem:

C:\Perl\My_PPM_repository_v5.8.8>ppm install Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-FromDB.ppd
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provide Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-S
imple for Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-FromDB

C:\Perl\My_PPM_repository_v5.8.8>ppm install Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-Simple.ppd
Unpacking Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-Simple-1.01...done
Generating HTML for Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-Simple-1.01...done
Updating files in site area...done
2 files unchanged

C:\Perl\My_PPM_repository_v5.8.8>ppm install Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-FromDB.ppd
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provide Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-S
imple for Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-FromDB

I have defined a local repository and I have downloaded zip archives of the modules from http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/8xx-builds-only/Windows/. I have unziped the packages in the local repository.

I was able to install other packages following the same procedure.

Thanks in advance,

bb

Hi,

A couple of questions to help see if I can reproduce the problem:

- what is the output of "perl -v"?
- do you have all of the packages required for the packages you mention?

On the second point, the output of "ppm tree Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-FromDB" mentions the following dependencies:

Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-Simple
IO-stringy
Spreadsheet-WriteExcel
OLE::Storage_Lite
Parse-RecDescent

Cheers,
