Using ExtUtils::Installed throws error about missing C compiler. * Package * ExtUtils-Installed 1.999_001 from module ExtUtils-Install 1.54 * Perlversion * Perl 5.10.1 (ActiveState Perl Build 1006) on Windows 7 Ult. * Howto reproduce * In Windows-DOS-Console (see example below): ====<snip>==== U:\>perl510 -MExtUtils::Installed -e "print $ExtUtils::Installed::VERSION" It looks like you don't have a C compiler on your PATH, so you will not be able to compile C or XS extension modules. You can install GCC from the MinGW package using the Perl Package Manager by running: ppm install MinGW 1.999001 U:\> ====<snip>==== * Code to reproduce * ====<snip>==== #perl use ExtUtils::Installed; ====<snip>==== * Solution * No patch. Sorry. The module seems to use Config.pm. Config.pm processes the warning about the missing compiler in line 391.
