Subject: ppm wants to install modules on my d: drive
I'm not sure if this is the right place to log issues with the latest binary installer(strawberry-perl-5.10.0.3.exe). Perl gets installed to the C: drive, put ppm wants to install modules to the d: drive - which happens to be my dvd drive.

This is the correct place. Do you have a URL for the PPM you were using? Adam K 2008/10/22 Dan Horne via RT <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>:

Any ppd I try installing hits this problem - e.g. H:\>ppm install CGI-Application Installing package 'CGI-Application'... mkdir D:\: No such file or directory; The system cannot find the path specified at C:/strawberry/perl/site/lib/PPM.pm line 333 However, after a look around I discovered the following line in C:\strawberry\perl\site\lib\ppm.xml, <OPTIONS BUILDDIR="D:\DOCUME~1\ADAM~1.KEN\LOCALS~1\Temp" CLEAN="1" CONFIRM="1" DOWNLOADSTATUS="16384" FORCEINSTALL="1" IGNORECASE="1" MORE="24" ROOT="" TRACE="0" TRACEFILE="PPM.LOG" VERBOSE="1" /> Without knowing anything about ppm, I'm guessing that it's trying to write to that build directory Dan

Oh weird, I wonder where the hell THAT hard-coded value came from. OK, I think I can deal with the problem, but not in the very short term. I've found another one or two minor configuration things that slipped through the cracks since the initial release, so I'll probably do an updated -1 release in the next few weeks. In the mean time, I recommend you change that to C:\strawberry\ppm (and create the directory), which is the directory name I'll most likely be replacing that value with in the updated version.
