Getting Error during ActivePerl 5.28 Installation


I’m getting this error message during ActivePerl-5.28 installation (I’m an Admin).

Installing ActiveState/ActivePerl-5.28 failed with error:
Could not initialize an installer for

Does anybody know how to fix this error and install ActivePerl?


That sounds like you grabbed one of the online-only installers and don’t have internet access.

If you download anonymously, you’ll only have access to installers which require full internet access (no proxy server either). If you don’t have that kind of environment, you should register an account and download one of the Featured Projects that become available when you are logged in. Those projects have installers that do not need internet access.
