* Distribution name and version : strawberry-perl-5.8.8-alpha-2.exe <http://vanillaperl.com/files/strawberry-perl-5.8.8-alpha-2.exe> * Perl version : perl, v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread * Operating System vendor and version : Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000] : VISTA (MSDN) release , 64-bit BUG: Include and LIB paths are incomplete/incorrect. CPAN modules that require compilation fail to compile. More detail - error messages, and workaround are posted at : http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=588243 Note: My PC (Like most Windows installs) did not have a c compiler, and depended on the gcc installed by Strawberry perl. However, the include and lib files required to compile CPAN distributions were not available/configured at module compile time. I made a very crude hack to get my system working. I believe a simpler, more elegant, "proper" fix should be distributed to the community. Thank you for creating and working on this perl distribution. -perlmonk "NetWallah".

This looks like a problem with PATH, LIB and INCLUDE not being set properly. The installer needs to be smarter about this and warn the user if it can't make these changes.

Version: 5.8.8. alpha 2 After installing, CPAN didn't work... because the paths weren't added. So I created the following bat file (c:\straberry-perl\strawberry-setup.bat) : set PATH=C:\strawberry-perl\perl\bin;C:\strawberry-perl\dmake\bin;C:\strawberry-perl\mingw;C:\strawberry-perl\mingw\bin;%PATH% set LIB=C:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib;C:\strawberry-perl\perl\bin set INCLUDE=C:\strawberry-perl\mingw\include;C:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE;C:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\encode Running the bat file fixed the problem. I recommend adding this bat file into the distribution. It could be added to the startup folder, either automatically or manually. -- Larry Yudelson Editorial Director Ben Yehuda Press http://www.BenYehudaPress.com ---------------------------------------------------- "Torah and Company is wonderfully conceived and wisely executed." -Joseph Telushkin, winner of the 2006 National Jewish Book Award http://tinyurl.com/26mnqy

Strawberry usually sets those on install, but I'm getting some reports that it isn't always. What version of Windows are your running? When you ran the install file, did the logged-in username have Administrator privileges? Thanks, David

Some research suggests this is a problem caused by the more restrictive user access control settings in Windows Vista. Changes/updates to the installer program will be necessary.
