My OS is Windows 7 Prof (64bit). I fetched strawberry-perl- from the Strawberry homepage and installed it to E:\Programme\strawberry\. Then I entered the cpan shell and started the installation of WWW::Mechanize. One of its installation tests ran infinitely, so I cancelled it and repeated the installation with notest install WWW::Mechanize I got the message Running make install !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING: WARNING: Failed chmod(0666, E:\Programme\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib\WWW\ Permission denied !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING: Unable to unlink 'E:\Programme\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib\WWW\': Permission denied Going to try to rename it to 'E:\Programme\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib\WWW\'. Failed to remove probably harmless shadow file 'E:\Programme\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib\WWW\' These are warning only, but the effect is that every file exists twice, in perl\site\lib\ and in perl\vendor\lib\. This doesn't happen when Strawberry perl is installed to the default path C:\strawberry\. Kind regards Klaus
