can't spawn cmd.exe

Posted by Rukia2008 on 2008-11-04 16:13

Hello all I am using Perl 5.10, I have C:\Perl\site;C:\Perl\bin;C:\Perl\lib;%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe set as my Path, and I have even tried the original path it came with, I am a newb, and currently in need of some help. Each time I type perldoc cgi into the command prompt it says Can't spawn "cmd.exe" no such file or directory at C:/Perl/lib/pod/perldoc.pm
Also before I deleted and reinstalled activeperl I tried to get the tk module to work and kept getting errors when I tried to use the command prompt to download it. I do remember it said "Bad File". I also could not get it to work when I installed it through ppm. When I used install Bundle::CPAN I also got a similar error. Basicaly I want to start with the first problem, getting perldoc to read the cgi module (it exists). Thankyou.
