Installing XML-LibXML fails

Posted by porterde on 2008-09-19 11:05

I am trying to install the XML-LibXML package (from the uwinnipeg repository), and it fails with the message below. I was careful to install XML-LibXML-Common first, and I manually verified that the Common.dll is actually there. This is with ActivePerl version

I can also run this command from the command-line successfully:

wperl.exe -MXML::SAX -e "XML::SAX->add_parser(q(XML::LibXML::SAX::Parser))->save_parsers()"

The real issue is that when I try to run my CGI code that uses this module, I get a the same error message. This makes me thing that there is more required to get this working.

Any help on this is most appreciated.
