Windows 7

Warnings is detail list on compile

Complains about modules (pm) not found.

What is the trick in elimination, found and ppm'd some but have 8 that I cannot find.

Could not find a suitable Class::Load implementation

I have a perl programs which works flawlessly on my computer, with Activestate perl 5.16.3 installed (32 bit, MS Windows 7, kernel 32 bit) and all the required modules.

I try to prepare a standalone executable with perlapp: the executable is created without any apparent issue. I run it in a separate console, and I get this error message.
Can't locate Path/Class/Entity.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ...
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted

That is easy: I explicitly include the module (in perlapp gui, menu Files, Added modules, ...)

PPM crashes after fresh install of Perl 5.16.3

On my Win 7/64-bit system, I did a clean uninstall of AS 5.16.1/64-bit, then a clean install of AS 5.16.3/64-bit.

When I then tried to run PPM, it immediately crashed.

I uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled, same crash.

I uninstalled, deleted C:\Perl64 directory and then reinstalled, same crash.

I'm going to try 5.16.2 now. Any other suggestions?

Upgrading while keeping all your settings/modules intact

I discovered that my current AS perl, 5.12, is no longer ppm'able [without a business license] so I'm upgrading to 5.16. I'm worried about how that 'upgrade' should/will go. right now perl is installed in c:\perl64. Can I just install the new 5.16 in the same directory and will it basically leave my installed modules and other such along [perhaps needing a big update via ppm, but still there]? Or will I run into problems?

"Perl Command Line Interpreter has stopped working" when running PPM.

Can't get the PPM GUI to run. This is on Win 7 64-bit. Tried reinstalling 5.16.2 64-bit, with the same result. PPM command line seems to work. Just the GUI won't run. Tried 5.16.2 x86 and this launches the GUI fine.

The following is in the event log:
Faulting application name: perl.exe, version: 5.16.2.1602, time stamp: 0x50d17d90
Faulting module name: ole32.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7c92c

Can't create Executable for other Targets

I use ActivePerl 5.10.1007 for Win32 x86 and the PDK 9.0.1 to make executables from my perl scripts.

This works finde but now i need a linux script and tried to generate one. When i change the Target to Linux (x86) the message "PerlApp doesnt have a cached copy..." comes and PerlApp tries to download the ActivePerl 5.10.107 for Linux. This happens because i reinstalled my development pc with the new windows 7.

But now there comes the Message "Access to ActivePerl-5.10.1.1007-i686-linux-glibc-2.3.2-291969.tar.gz requires an ActivePerl Business Edition licence to be installed".

ActiveTcl Demos

Having just installed TCL 8.5.9, and using Teacup to install the Expect Pakage successfully, I can't find the Expect Demo. The documentatio indicates:

"Expect for Windows includes a number of demonstration applications to help you get started. These demos are installed in the demos\Expect directory beneath the Tcl installation directory (by default, C:\Tcl\demos\Expect)."

HOwever, the demos are not present here.

Can't find package Expect, ActiveTCL 8.6.4

I installed ActiveTCL 8.6.4 x32 on Windows 7. Installed Expect by running:
teacup install Expect

But when I run:
package require Expect

I get:
can't find package Expect
while executing
"package require Expect"
(file "expect.tcl" line 4)

What am I doing wrong?

Problems with 'gdata' and Perl - "unable to locate valid perl interpreter"

Hi there,

I just installed ActivePerl (ActiveState Software ActivePerl 5.20.2001) but it doesn't seem to communicate with my R Studio program since I get this message everytime I try to run the command "library(gdata)" after I have installed the gdata package. Do you know what I am doing wrong?
Thanks a lot!!

Here's what R Studio says:

" > install.packages('gdata')
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/MDEM0023/Documents/R/win-library/3.2’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL 'http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/3.2/gdata_2.17.0.zip'

Win32::GUI menus are 2 pixels wide!

Hi all,

Has anyone seen this problem? I have created a context or pop-up menu but when I display it it is very narrow (OK, maybe more than two pixels but not wide enough to see any menu text).

I am writing a perl program that has no window, it appears only in the Windows 7 status bar to the bottom right of the screen. When you hover over its icon a tooltip is displayed with various bits of text. This all works fine and dandy except I need to be able to display a menu for "Exit" and "About" options.

The menu is created thus:

$menu_popup = Win32::GUI::Menu->new(
