Windows 7

Installing the EXE created by PerlSvc as a Windows Service

Probably a simple nooby question but I've not found anything in the forums or the docs.

I've created the exe file using PerlSvc. Now I want it to run as a Windows Service. Do I need to install it as a service using SC or something similar?


how do uninstall a ActivePerl license from the wrong machine?

this question has been resolved via a support ticket.

Help Running Simple beer.tcl Expect demo example on Windows 7

I have installed ActiveTcl 8.6 X86
Then using Teacup, installed Expect
Then using Teacup, installed all demos in the C:\Tcl\demo folder

When I double-click the beer.tcl file from windows explorer, I get an empty box pop up with beer.tcl title. And that is it. If I examine Windows processes I see there is a wish.exe process.

I also tried running this from the command line but same behavior.

I also tried running this from tclsh session, but I just get message "can't find .\beer.tcl"

What is going on - how do I run this simple example?


Itcl Crashes the 8.6.1 Interpeter

If I try to run any Itcl script in ActiveTcl8. it crashes in a dramatic way. Works every time. Below is a simple test script you can run that will reproduce the error. Someone else must have encountered this. Is this an installation problem or is there really a problem with 8.6.1? Sometimes I get the message about a tail callback and that is should not happen.

This was run from tkcon 2.7 but it will also crash if you use tclsh or wish.

49 % package require Itcl
50 % itcl::class Print {common Text "Message"; public method send args {}}

perl executable generated by PerlApp fails with LWP authentication


I wrote a perl program (Active perl 5.16.3 32 bit) that will authenticate to an intranet server and query some details. I want to buy the PDK and built Exe so that my colleagues can execute without installing perl/modules.

After compile, when i test with the exectuable, it fails to read the web page (web page returns error 302). The perl script is fine.

Any suggestion pls?.

The code is :

#! /usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
require LWP::UserAgent;
use HTTP::Headers;
use HTTP::Cookies;
use HTML::Form;
use Crypt::SSLeay;
use MIME::Base64;
use JSON;
use Data::Dumper;

RESOLVED SITE ISSUE (was "403 Forbidden Error When Installing Crypt-SSLeay")

When I try to install the module Crypt-SSLeay, I get the message "install failed: 403 Forbidden". I've tried installing from ppm gui and from the ppm prompt and get the same results in both places. Any suggestions?

I am using Perl version 5.14.2 and PPM version 4.14 on a Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

ActivePerl, Windows Script Host/ActiveX and Unicode

Hello list,

[note: I've tried posting this to the Perl-Win32-Users mailing list, but the list is having problems creating new subscriptions].

I need some help/clarification with Win32::OLE and Window Script Host / ActivePerl, and Unicode from and more importantly back to a calling program.

A program I use (Directory Opus) supports doing renames via Windows Script Host (VBScript, JScript, PerlScript/ActivePerl). The perl script I’ve written accepts some file names as input, and returns transformed file names as output.

I have set

Win32::OLE->Option(CP => CP_UTF8)

PyScripter Installation

I am a beginner and interested in Python. I've downloaded the 3.3 version and everything seems to be OK. I would like to try PyScripter as an IDE and would like to know if there is any reason I can't download it, install it, and use it with the ActiveState version of Python.
