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?
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.

I would like to develop a desktop app for windows 8.1 using ActivePerl. The most recent version of ActivePerl 5.18.2 depends on MSVCRT.DLL - as far as I understand MSVCRT.DLL cannot be used in a Windows 8.1 store app, MSVCR110.DLL and related DLLs should be used instead. Since Microsoft is forcing the move to Window 8.1 will ActivePerl for Windows 8.1 be compiled against MSVCR110.DLL and related runtime libraries?
this question has been resolved via a support ticket.
I tried yesterday update to newest AP 126.96.36.1991 and have not succeed to get it working.
Firstly uninstalled completely previous perl. Then new install to the same directory, and perl is crashing on most of my existing scripts that were working with perl 5.16. I think the bug which was already present in AP 5.18.1 is still present (wrong linkage to perl516.dll). Anyway I didnot manage any of 5.18 perls fully functional and I did update this software many times. So I assume there's something wrong with all 5.18 builds.
I work for a company which is currently using AP 5.8.822 on their 2003 box and have quite a few Perl scripts. I see in the AS 5.16 documentation, it says build 16xx is incompatible with previous version's binaries, though I'm not sure what that entails.
If we were to upgrade to 5.16.x as I have on my PC, would it break all of the existing Perl scripts written and used in the 5.8.822 environment? I would like to upgrade so I can use the remove_tree function and output to a scalar variable for logging purposes, as opposed to just the spray and pray of rmtree.
I asked this question on various ActiveState forums and in an email to ActiveState support with no reply. I'll try here. Can anybody say when 5.18.2 will be released?
Please share the link details where I can download the community edition of Active Perl for Solaris 19 (X86).
