Subject: strawberry-perl-5.10.1.0-beta-2.zip - "perlINST_VER~" subdir
In strawberry-perl-5.10.1.0-beta-2.zip there is a strange subdirectory "perlINST_VER~" containing the following files: - perlINST_VER~\bin\cpandb - perlINST_VER~\bin\findrule - perlINST_VER~\bin\cpandb.bat - perlINST_VER~\bin\findrule.bat It seems that these files should be rather in "perl\bin" -- kmx

Good catch. $Config{installvendorbin} was missing a tilde when I set it in Perl-Dist-Strawberry/share/strawberry/perl-5.10.1/win32/config.gc.tt. http://fisheye2.atlassian.com/changelog/cpan/?cs=9206 is the patch.

Is it possible to fix a deployed installation? Which files must be changed/moved? -- Olivier Mengué - http://o.mengue.free.fr/

"Fix" meaning move the files, sure! Since installvendorbin is only used during installation of perl, no further files will be created in that directory. Any files that are in that directory can (and should) be moved to strawberry/perl/bin, no problem. Finding this type of problem before I get really embarrassed by releasing a non-beta version is one reason why I release betas!
Resolving since October release happened.
