Need to reinstall ActivePerl on Windows 2008 Server VM

Posted by douglas99 on 2016-09-16 05:58

I have installed ActivePerl on Windows 2008 with MSI from exe on the wrong Directory C drive rather then D drive. Best way to resolve issue can I repair, modify or do I need to remove it? Then I would also need to delete directories created during installation of ActivePerl ? Thanks Doug

Perl brands to the install path and can't be moved. You can't even re-use the downloaded modules.

Remove the directories manually after the uninstaller runs. If you can't, that's a tip that something external (a service? IIS?) is currently running Perl and will need to be shut down and re-configured for the new location.
