Komodo License not Working


Why won't Komodo allow me to do the 21 day trial? Or let me use my actual license?


If you're having trouble starting your Komodo trial or it won't pick up your freshly purchased and installed license, there are a few things you can try to work around the issue:

Trial Issues:

  • A. Download a new Komodo installer and reinstall Komodo
  • C. Contact and tell them you're trial license won't start and they should be able to help.

License Installed but not Used:

  • A. Download a new Komodo installer and reinstall Komodo
  • C. Do the same as the last step but also download your license installer again from
  • D. Contact and tell them you're license won't work and they should be able to help.

- If you already have a previous Komodo license you are STILL ENTITLED to a Komodo trial of whatever the new version is.

Bug in AS basekit 8.5.17?

Using my software (password gorilla) with AS Tcl/Tk 8.5.17 (community edition) in script mode works perfectly but when I create a package with the AS basekit 8.5.17 (or 8.6.3) I get an error message.

The culprit seems to be a *string* command in the code:

set fieldData [string range $decryptedFirstBlock 5 [expr {$fieldLength +

The "string range" operation of the kit has changed the value of the
variable "decryptedFirstBlock" whereas the normal Tcl/Tk version 8.5.17
leaves the variable untouched.

5.18-x86 repository not working


Few days ago the 5.18 x86 PPM repository stopped working, it completely disappeared along with 5.20 x86 repository.


Is it a new policy by activestate or it just moved to somewhere else ?

Expect for WIndows 5.40 Source code

Hi All,

I'm Trying to find the source code for Expect 5.40 for Windows.

All I could find in here / sourcefroge / Google is version 5.43 source code.

This Version is somehow diffrent from 5.40, and when compiling an executable file form TCl code + Expect 5.43 using the TclAPP.exe with TDK 5.2

I'm having dependancy issues + timout issues form the Expect modle.

Hence, i Would like to use Expect 5.40 which already proven to be more reliable for my needs.

Can anyone advise ?

Many thanks,

Recent posts not visible

I recently (yesterday) posted an item to the ActivePerl discussion forum; now I can't find it, and it doesn't appear in my "View my recent posts".
Yesterday, the only place I could see it was in the "Recent posts" part of the forum.

Any ideas?

Active Perl and IIS on newer windows server versions

I'm not seeing anything on ActivePerl and IIS newer than 2012.

I have been tossed a legacy application - Perl 5.8.xx relying heavily on the static storage provided by PerlEx.

I can't find any updated articles on the subject of PerlEx. Last time I looked there wasn't a PerlEx with later versions of Perl.

My questions are
- is there a version of PerlEx for the latest versions Perl
- will PerlEx run on new versions of IIS
- is there an alternative for new versions of IIS
- will Perl 5.8 still run on newer versions of IIS
