Hi, bro:

I executed state-remote-installer.exe in my Windows10 cmd.exe many times, but failed, like this:

This will install the State Tool

How can I download ActiveState Perl by state-remote-installer.exe?

waitspring,

We have been able to reproduce this error on our side, which appears to be a network error. Typically, it comes from trying to do the install shortly after starting your system. Our install initially failed, and then 2 minutes later succeeded. Please retry the install and let us know if it works.

One other thing you can try is to set your error messages to verbose before running the state-remote-installer.exe command, which might give you more information.

Thanks,

I have the same error. I haven’t rebooted this PC in days. I was putting up a new WAMP server on an old (stable) Win 7 Pro 64 PC. This is what I get at the command line

C:\Users\Ken\Downloads>state-remote-installer.exe

This will install the State Tool

One solution might be to look for a prebuilt WAMP package that includes all you need. They used to exist, and probably still do if you have to use Windows 7.

Windows 7 requires a previous generation of ActiveState products. None of the current versions will install on anything older than Windows 10. You’re seeing the State Tool failing to install, and it is the first step for everything recent.

If you have professional reason to use Windows 7, such that you have budget for a subscription that covers legacy installers, you could upgrade as far as Perl 5.26 (which you may well have already). If you don’t have budget, you might be able to compile your own Perl from the source code, or might be able to use a binary distribution from one of the other sources for Perl, including some of those all-in-one WAMP packages that included everything.
