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.

Thank you

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.

Can't download Tk ppm for Perl 5.14 64-bit


I have been trying to download the Tk ppmx from the site but it keeps failing with a:

An error occurred during a connection to

SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

Can any give me some clues on this? Or is there another location to download that ppmx?



Can't locate in @INC

Hi all,

I have been using active state perl for over 8 years.
The person that setup the dev servers have since left.

We purchased the latest version of PDK.
I installed a new server with PDK 9.2.1 and Perl 5.16.3

The PERLLIB ENV is set to c:\Perl64\site\lib and c:\Perl64\lib

When I compile the perl script to exe everything works fine.
When I execute the script I get the following error:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: C:\dev\perl\) at /Net/ line 536

It is almost like the compiler don't add the libraries to the exe.

Error Message "Can't load 'C:/Perl64/lib/auto/DBD/Oracle/Oracle.dll" While Connecting to Oracle

I am trying to configure an Oracle connection from Perl running on a Windows 7 desktop to an Oracle 11g database running on Linux; however the database connection step is failing.

The following line of perl code fails:

The full error message is:

Can I use PPM with Strawberry Perl?

I have been programming computers since 1967, hence the name PapaGeek. I am well versed in visual studio C++ and C#, but I am a relative Perl newbie.

I am working with Strawberry Perl, Eclipse, and Epic on Windows 7. The PPM package with Strawberry Perl, to be as polite as possible, sucks!

Can I run the Active State PPM process with my Strawberry Perl? If so, what are the steps that I need to follow to properly install it? Again, you are talking to a newbie, so write the answer like a chapter in “Perl for Dummies”.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
