Frequently encountered problems may have an FAQ available.
Nevermind... Must have been a temporary thing.
The following links from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads point to non-existant files.
I installed ActivePerl under "C:\Program Files\" and when I run PPM it just doesn't update the repository, says there's a permission problem?
I installed it as the System user and have done everything to give Perl64 under "Program Files" read+write permissions, no use.
On the other hand, installing Perl64 directly under "C:\" doesn't have any of the above mentioned problems, just that it's better to maintain a proper hierarchy, hence installation under "C:\Program Files\".
Can someone help?
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 just installed Perl from the new 1602 install executable, having removed all traces of my 5.14 install. The majority of the documentation appears to be missing. None of the perl516delta files are present, none of the core documentation is showing, and no more than 60 modules are showing in the modules section?
I am loath to install 1601 first as it looks like someone reported a problem with installing 1602 over that.
I am trying to upgrade an ActivePerl installation and I keep getting the error message
"The selected directory contains an incompatible version of ActivePerl. Please choose a different installation location!"
I find this difficult to believe because I am trying to install 5.16.2 Build 1602 over 5.16.1. Build 1601 ... seriously, one minor revision cannot be upgraded?
I tried turning on verbose msi logging by invoking the install thusly:
msiexec /i ActivePerl-126.96.36.1992-MSWin32-x86-296513.msi /l*v ActivePerlInstallLog.txt
Hey everyone, ill try to keep things simple.
Im running on Ubuntu Linux x64 (i think, but it doesnt matter because i tires 64 and the x86)
I download ActivePerl, extract it to desktop with winrar, then i open my terminal, go to directory and type:
just like the READ-ME says.
When i do this i get this message:
In case the image doesnt go through, i pretty much get spammed with:
- file 'perl/lib/Pod/(somefilename)' missing
I have used Active State Perl for a few years on other machines (XP, Vista), but am unable to get Perl to install correctly on my new Windows 7 64 bit machine. When I run a Perl script that outputs to the screen, I see no output. The output screen is blank (no errors appear).
Embarrassingly even a simple "Hello" program won't run.
I'd appreciate any help.
I tried to run a perl program on windows 7 64-bit machine which is compiled and generated with PDK 8.2.1 32-bit build. It is throwing error as below
"install_driver(Oracle) failed: Can't load 'C:/Perl/lib/auto/DBD/Oracle/Oracle.dl

I have installed Activeperl 5.16.1 on two PCs. Both run Windows 7 but one is 32bit and the other 64bit. I have installed the correct version of Activeperl on each.
However, the 64bit version is mission a lot of documentation, including the core documentation. The 32bit version seems fine.
This is a nuisence, as I do not always have an internet connection.
Make work around is to copy the 32bit documentation, but it would be nice if the install provided all the documentation.
