I'm trying to install 32-bit Strawberry Perl using the MSI installer. My OS is: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP 1. (64-bit Operating System) I don't have enough space to install it on drive C (the os disk), so I'm trying to install it on D:\strawberry\ instead. But every time I do this the installer rolls it back and says the installation failed! (Saying Strawberry Perl Setup Wizard ended prematurely) It leaves behind a d:\strawberry folder with only one file in it (, which contains 2 lines: D:\strawberry\ perl\lib\ Is there any way to get around this issue?

Could you please try to run the installation via this command: c:\anydir> msiexec /l*vx install.log /i strawberry-perl- Currently the only workaround for you is to get ZIP distribution - download e.g. - unzip it to e.g. d:\strawberry\ - run d:\strawberry\ - run d:\strawberry\ - reboot (not necessary) -- kmx
MSI installer was redesigned in 5.20.x series. Please try latest strawberry perl If no new response appears here I will close this ticked 2 weeks from now.
