I have to install Email-Mime over ppm. The installable version of Email-Mime needs Email-Simple version 2.102. But the newest version of Email-Simple over ppm is 2.101 so i can´t install Email-Mime over ppm. Any ideas to get Email-Mime installed?

with best regards

another user was kind enough to send an earlier version of Email-Mime that fix this problem. If you are interested in. I can send that file to you via email...

I was able to find the Email-Simple 2.102 last night. Email-MIME worked fine afterwords. Thank you for the quick response though.

Can you tell me to which location i have to copy the file?

Do you mean the place to download, or where to extract it?
For Windows, I know it doesn't matter where, as long as you change directory to the location of the extracted module in a command prompt. You can use dmake to install it. ppm install dmake if you don't have it. Just run the command perl > dmake > dmake test > dmake install. Then you're good to go. Just make sure to ppm uninstall email-send and email-simple before.

I grabbed the 2.102 from

Hope this helps.

Check the version availability numbers. For example, if you are working with 32 bit Windows Perl 5.8, the newest version available is 2.101. If you are working with a 64-bit Windows Perl 5.8, there's no version available at all.

The repositories for Perl 5.8 and 5.10 are frozen. No further module updates will be released.

If you are using one of the Perls where a new version is available, but aren't able to access it, check your status bar at the bottom of the GUI. If the number of available modules is the same as the number of installed modules, then you haven't succeeded in connecting to the PPM servers.
