Unable to Install

I'm utilizing Active Perl and the Perl Package Manager for an undertaking for a idioms graduate understudy. I am utilizing ActivePerk 5.16.2 Build 1602. I'm on Windows 7.

I'm attempting to introduce 2 bundles, yet the "Imprint for Install" catch is dark ed out and I can't click (comparably, in the event that I hunt down the bundle name and right snap it, I see the alternative to Install it yet it is likewise dim ed out). The bundles I might want to introduce are for 2.30 and 1.13

Each time I stack PPM, I get this window:

Komodo IDE @INC Does not point to installed Perl Modules on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I have installed Perlbrew and cpanm on my Mac OS X since El Capitan locks down the native perl installation.

When I "use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel;", I get an edit error "Can't locate Spreadsheet/ParseExcel in @INC (you may need to install the Spreadsheet::ParseExcel module) ...

I have installed Spreadsheet::ParseExcel using cpanm. I have modified the Komodo "File Properties and Settings" -> Additional Perl Interperter so the directory is there, but I still get the error even though the directory is in the path. What could I be doing wrong?

PPM Error

Hi together,

i really need help with this: I installed perl and now i want to install a couple of modules with PPM. But if i try installing modules i get this error:

"ppm install MinGW" (one command im using for example)

"ppm install failed: DBD::SQLite::db selectrow_array failed: file is encrypted or is not in a database"

Im searching for solutions for this problems since hours but i found nothing yet. Even if i type only PPM in the command shell it appears the same error.

Could someone help me with that problem? I would appreciate this a lot.

Regards, Leo

Perl 5.22.1 install seems to not install DBD::Oracle ( missing)

Recently installed ActivePerl-

PPM shows DBD::Oracle installed to perl area as version 1.74, which is latest available, but I get errors when running my former programs that:
>>Can't locate DBD/ in @INC (you may need to install the DBD::Oracle module) (@INC
>>contains: ... C:/Perl/site/lib C:/Perl/lib .) at \\vie ...

There are many other DBD packages under C:\Perl\lib\DBD, but no

The workaround is to use PPM to reinstall DBD::Oracle, which will put a copy in

Can I move the ActivePerl top level directory after installation?

I am running ActivePerl 5.18 on all of my CentOS hosts and use the default installation directory of /opt/ActivePerl-5.18. However, I am wondering what the consequences would be if I renamed or moved the directory to say, /usr/local. Any insight at all would be greatly appreciated.

Problems with 'gdata' and Perl - "unable to locate valid perl interpreter"

Hi there,

I just installed ActivePerl (ActiveState Software ActivePerl 5.20.2001) but it doesn't seem to communicate with my R Studio program since I get this message everytime I try to run the command "library(gdata)" after I have installed the gdata package. Do you know what I am doing wrong?
Thanks a lot!!

Here's what R Studio says:

" > install.packages('gdata')
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/MDEM0023/Documents/R/win-library/3.2’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL ''

Install directory still defaults to C:\Perl64 instead of the set C:\prg\Perl64

I used installation package on Windows 7 64bit and changed the install directory from the default C:\Perl64 to C:\prg\Perl64. The installer, however, still installs to the c:\Perl64 directory.
