Installation Support for ActivePerl

Installation Problems, Installer content, and FAQs for ActivePerl

HTML Users Guide not updated with PPM modules, and missing sections

I recently added a new package with PPM, and was looking for the documention. New packages downloaded with the PPM should show up in the ActiveState User Guide, on the left pane contents, but there just seems to be a lot missing, including the new package (Hash::Case). I have only 6 of the 300 packages installed, nothing under Core, 1 pragma, 2 programs.
Can I fix this and get the documentation to the installed packages and core?

As a workaround, can I find the HTML PPM said it was generating somewhere? I've looked at C:/Perl/lib/site but it's not there with the pm.

PerlScript support for Windows Server 2008 64 bit servers

Hi,

I'd like to use PerlScript scripts with Solarwinds to leverage Perl to create clever application monitors that report their findings to Solarwinds Server and Application Monitor. Solarwinds will only run Perl via Windows Script Host, so I have to use PerlScript.

ActivePerl 5.14.2 Build 1402 (64-bit) change installation directory to c:\Program Files\Perl64 on Windows 7 64-bit

Having an issue with the ActivePerl-5.14.2.1402-MSWin32-x64-295342.msi. I am trying to configure the msi to install the files to the 64-bit Program Files folder in Windows 7 64-bit. The msi either installs to Program Files(x86)\Perl64 or C:\Perl64, but not in the 64-bit directory.

installation issue with Active Perl on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1

Hi,

it's the first time I post it and the first time I can't install active perl on a server.
Sorry first for my english style.

I want to install activePerl on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1, we could do it on Prod environment
but doesn't work on staging.

I just launch the msi file and just after making the choices, it just end abruptly.

I did already see some forums, telling we had to be on c: locally on server, but still the same issue.
You surely already answered this question, but didn't find it already.

I could install with a log.

Installing ActivePerl on OS X Lion

Hi, I may eventually figure this out, but I cannot get the manual part of the installation process to work. I am stuck at the configuration part. OS X Lion. I am trying to do this as a student/novice, because my system Perl did not perform as it should....it told me none of the documentation was in existence, and I couldn't get on to the second exercise after "hello World, " in LEARNING PERL. It actually said that there was "No documentation found for "perlfunc".

Then, after extensive searching, I found that OSX has defective/incomplete Perl.

ActivePerl installation(none) issue on mac

Any help is appreciated...:<(

where to find unbundled 64 bit versions perl512.lib and perl512.dll ?

I have some applications written in C++ (VisualStudio 6) on Windows XP, using perlembed (linked against perlxxx.lib, distributed with perlxxx.dll)
now I need to rewrite my app at 64 bit and I would need to link to 64 bit version of the library, but I need it without installing 64 bit ActiveState Perl, is it available a zip version so I can extract lib and dll as libraries for a cross compilation ?

TIA

Carlo

P.S.
of course I will recompile at 64 bit with VS 2005
