Subject: Installation of Perl v5.22
Date: Thu, 23 Jul 2015 17:57:09 -0400
To: bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry [...] rt.cpan.org
From: Lawrence Durfee <lawrence.durfee [...] fairchildsemi.com>
I had been running Strawberry Perl v5.18 and decided to upgrade to v5.22 because I needed to update modules that, apparently, only work with v5.22 Perl. After the installation, when I run Perl or even CPAN, I get error messages like the following: Perl lib version (5.18.1) doesn't match executable 'cpan.bat' version (v5.22.0) at C:\Strawberry\perl\lib/Config.pm line 62. I used the MSI installer ("strawberry-perl-5.22.0.1-64bit.msi"). I downloaded the file today from the Strawberry Perl website. It seemed to install without errors. I have many, many modules that I would have to reinstall (not to mention trying to determine what to install) if I have to remove all existing versions of Perl. So I would like to avoid erasing everything and starting from scratch. Some details: 1. I'm running Win7 Professional Service Pack 1 2. The previous Perl version (v5.18): Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 18 subversion 1) configuration: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=4.0, archname=MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-64int uname='Win32 strawberry-perl 5.18.1.1 #1 Tue Aug 13 19:20:13 2013 i386' config_args='undef' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=undef useithreads=define, usemultiplicity=define useperlio=define, d_sfio=undef, uselargefiles=define, usesocks=undef use64bitint=define, use64bitall=undef, uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef 3. The new Perl version (v5.22): perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 (v5.22.0) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread 4. There is one and only one folder with Perl installations: "C:\Strawberry" 5. The windoz path var points to the correct locations 6. There are two Perl entries in the control panel, one for v5.18 and one for v5.22 Can you help? <http://www.fairchildsemi.com/web_resources/themes/Fairchild2012/images/fairchild-logo.png?v2014tm> With respect, Lawrence F.

Unfortunately it is a "feature" of perl (not only strawberry) that installed modules (especially those that are not pure perl) has to be reinstalled when upgrading between major versions like 5.18 >> 5.20 -- kmx
