When attempting to install PP, the install fails on the 64-bit versions of windows due to the required packages being unavailable. I've attached a printscreen for your convenience. This is true across multiple versions and packages. ~Philip -------------------------------- Philip Kahn 2635 College Ave #2 Berkeley, CA 94704 818.749.2009 http://www.revealedsingularity.net <http://www.revealedsingularity.net/> --------------------------------

technically, this isn't a bug. It's only a convenience service that we're providing binaries of PAR::Packer for win32 via CPAN. Normally, people are expected to have a C compiler set up with their perl if they want to install C/XS based modules from CPAN directly. I would suggest one of the following solutions for you: - Try to find an x64 PPM repository with PAR::Packer binaries - Wait for the upcoming PAR::Packer release. I'll try to find volunteers with x64-Windows installations who may generate a binary for upload to CPAN. - Install a C compiler that's compatible with your perl. Naturally option 2 isn't guaranteed to work as it relies on volunteers. If you'd like to help out provided you have the necessary compiler setup, you can generate a .par binary with the commands: perl Makefile.PL make make par Best regards, Steffen
