Installing modules: Getting "Cannot find 'bzip2' program ..." when installing modules

Posted by slm777 on 2018-01-08 07:03


Hoping for some help. I have installed the 64 bit version of the Perl community edition onto my machine (clean install). I keep getting the error below when trying to installed various modules (for example, "cpan I18N::Langinfo") needs the external program bzip2 in order to handle 'C:\Perl64\cpan\sources\authors\id\S\SH\SHAY\perl-5.26.1.tar.bz2'

Any ideas why bzip2 is not found? Do I need to install this separately from somewhere (I have never had to do so in the past on other machines).

Any suggestions welcome.

Many thanks,
