What is the most recent perl version?
On the download page as current 5.12.4 is picked, while the 5.14.1 has higher version number. It's interesting that binaries in this packege have older timestamp (06/16/2011) against lower version (06/20/2011). Quite confused about that :???:
Should I upgrade ActivePerl to a latest version? Thanks.
I installed ActivePerl-220.127.116.117-MSWin32-x86-291969.msi and even though the box was checked to associate files, it did not associate the files. I tried to manually associated the .pl files with perl.exe and windows 7 will not let me. How can I get this working?
It appears PerlScript for Windows Scripting Host, which worked fine in AP 5.12.3 and earlier, is broken in 5.14.0 build 1400. It literally just crashes on start. I tested this two different XP machines, one running WSH 5.6, the other 5.7, as well as Windows 7 and 2008 Server with WSH 5.8. The result has been very consistent.
I downloaded ActivePerl-18.104.22.1684-MSWin32-x64-294330.msi from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads, and am getting the following error from Windows Installer when I attempt to install it on a Windows 7 x64 computer:
"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."
Does anyone have any idea why I'm getting this error and how to resolve it so I can install the software?
Thank you very much.
Trying to run perlcritic after reinstalling activeperl
This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 3 (v5.12.3) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 9 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

Binary build 1204  provided by ActiveState http://www.ActiveState.com
Built Feb 9 2011 14:38:22
Was told that the following modules were missing
Would hope that if perlcritic is in the default install, the supporting modules would be there also.
i installed last activestate perl on ubuntu 10.10 under /opt directory, after that i installed a module called "Filesys::SmbClientParser" thru activestate ppm and tested how it works, well it didn't.
Error > http://paste.ubuntu.com/582103/
looks like it just don't get past correct libs in /opt, it just tried to find in my distribution ones.
I want to install activestate perl on my Mac OSX. Mac already has perl installed on it. So, does that mean, I have to uninstall the CPAN perl and then install activestate perl. Or can I just install the activestate perl on top of it. I am very confused as to where the Mac OSX stores all the installation files. I want to know how to uninstall CPAN perl.
Hi, the installation documentation states that Perl will install for the local user only if the account running the msi installation package does not have admin rights. However, this is not the case when I try to install it. The install fails stating that it cant register perl for ALL users and rolls back. Why would it try to register Perl for all users if I clearly don't have admin rights? Do you have a work around? Command line install with some obscure argument?
