Odd behavior after upgrading package with pip.

I am seeing some very odd behavior with ActiveState ActivePython after using pip to install a package.

1. Install ActiveState ActivePython 3.6.

2. Run a Python script using the file association, that is just by calling the script itself. All is well in the universe.

3. Use pip to upgrade a package that is included in ActiveState ActivePython. For example, run the following command.

python -m pip install --upgrade pip

4. Run a Python script using the file association, that is just by calling the script itself. The universe blows up.

5. The following dialog box is displayed.

ActiveTcl security support


I was wondering for ActiveTCL, could you please explain to me how you support the security on executables? For example, does it provide good support to prevent code from being hacked? Thank you!

Serial read


I am new to perl programming, but not to programming in general. Currently I am working on a project, where I need to read data from a serial port. A perl script was provided for this, and because of the nature and requirements of the project, I must use this specific perl script. The script was written probably in the early 2000's.

I am running ActiveState Perl v5.24.3. on 64-bit Windows 10. Here is the code:

$ComPort = "COM7:38400,n,8,1";
open COM,$ComPort or die "Cannot open COMport\n";
open OUT,">" . $Package . ".log" or die "Cannot open logfile\n";

ppm gui failed: DBI connect

If the name of Windows user is not written in the Latin alphabet (I have Cyrillic), then ppm produces such an error. How to avoid it?

ppm gui failed: DBI connect('dbname=C:\Users\????\AppData\Local/ActiveState/ActivePerl/2404/ppm-MSWin32-x64-multi-thread-5_24.db','',...) failed: unable to open database file

pypm' is not recognized as an internal or external command

pypm' is not recognized as an internal or external command

The program was loaded

How can I solve the problem?

ImageMagick fails on accessing registry key (Exception 495: RegistryKeyLookupFailed `CoderModulesPath' @ error/module.c/GetMagic

Exception 495: RegistryKeyLookupFailed `CoderModulesPath' @ error/module.c/GetMagickModulePath/664

Perl: ActivePerl-
ImageMagick: ImageMagick-7.0.8-11-Q16-x64-static
ppm install PerlMagick

First note - The dynamic version of ImageMagick crashed on being unable to load the dll. That's why I switched to static.

A simple test script trying to read a .GIF produces the error above.


Unable to use ImageMagick with 5.26

ppm install PerlMagick

I get the Dynaloader error with respect the image magick dll. Is there a fix?
