Windows 7 x64 Installation Problem

I downloaded ActivePerl-5.12.3.1204-MSWin32-x64-294330.msi from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads, and am getting the following error from Windows Installer when I attempt to install it on a Windows 7 x64 computer:

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

Does anyone have any idea why I'm getting this error and how to resolve it so I can install the software?

Thank you very much.

Problem installing DateTime::TimeZone (possibly a 32 bit vs 64 bit issue)

I just switched to W7 64 bits, from W7 32 bits, and am having a lot of trouble installing ActivePerl packages.

I started out by installing the 64 bits version of ActivePerl, but found that there were many modules that simply would not install. So, I uninstalled ActivePerl, and reinstalled the 32 bit version (but still running 64 bit version of W7). This seems to be better, and I have been able to install all the modules that I had installed in the past.

install activepython or python on windows 7 64 bit

I have windows 7 64 bit and wish to install python 3.1.2.4-win64-x64.mis or activepython 2.6.6.1.6-win64-x64.mir or python 2.6.6amd64.msi. Could you please provide advise on which one I should install and as well provide step by step process on how to install python on Windows 7 64 bit. Thanks

Win 7 64 bit & Expect

Can I spawn telnet in Win 7 64-bit machine using Expect?
Or is it possible to spawn any 'win32 console application' using '32bit Active Tcl with Expect' in '64-bit machines'?
Kindly let me know.

ActiveState Python 2.6.2.2 behaves different with/without explicit python.exe in front of .py file (Check the attached image)

Hi,

I get different result while running the .py directly in the command shell then prefix it with the explicit python command. The ActiveState Python 2.6.2.2 has been un-installed and re-installed multiple times and computer has also been restarted several times, but sitll not solving the problem. Last time when it was good was before I installed IronPython and CPython3.2 which were later all uninstalled. So, what could be the cause of the problem (snapshot attached in the file)?

Thanks

pypm doesn't work at all with new Community 2.7.1 installation

I just tried to install ActivePython 2.7.1.4 on Vista Ultimate(64bit) using the 32 bit .msi file. All seems to work fine and when I choose the option from the Windows menu - up comes the PyPM commmand dialogue box. However all I see is: "'pypm' is not recognised as an internal or external command ...." etc. I have searched for pypm.* with the intention of placing it on the Path - but it is not anywhere I can find. When I start Idle - that is OK too and my scripts work. The reason for trying out ActiveState is because of the easy installation of MySQL library and so I need pypm to work.

How to get started with GTK and QT

I need to write "hello world" in GTK and QT with perl on Windows 7 and FreeBSD 8.2.

I'm using ActiveState Perl on Windows 7 and it is not clear to me what packages I need.

I'm trying to follow the directions at http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/ and I cannot find GTK2 in activestate PPM.

I'm also trying to get a QT version of "hello world" working and I cannot find the QT runtime for perl in PPM either. Can someone guide me and tell me what packages I need from active state perl from PPM?

Added later:

Gtk2::Socket

I am porting a Perl script to Windows 7. All works well except for
....
my $socket = Gtk2::Socket->new();
...
error message...
Can't locate object method "new" via package "Gtk2::Socket" ....

I am using the ppm package Gtk2 1.222. I can't seem to find anything about this on the web.

I want to attach the output window of Gnuplot to a VBox widget. Under Linux and on the MAC OS I can use

my $xxid = socket->get_id;

and pass it to Gnuplot as a hexadecimal string so that it exports its display to the Gtk2 VBox panel in my program.
