This is just an update that you can include in the readme or as a croak in the Makefile.pl Seems since 2.3x of the Windows install for GraphViz they no longer put the path to the 'dot.exe' file in the 'PATH' So to get this module to install correctly you have to add it to the path ie set path=C:\Program Files\Graphviz2.36\bin;%PATH%

Hi John Here's the official reply (from one of the authors of Graphviz): == Indeed, as it says on the Download page: Note: As of version 2.31, the Visual Studio package no longer alters the PATH variable or accesses the registry at all. If you wish to use the command-line interface to Graphviz, you will need to set the PATH variable yourself. We would prefer to set the PATH, but we could never seem to get it right. We would always get someone who complained that we wiped out their entire repository or something. So we took the minimalist route. == I'll have to amend the docs and installation code.

Thanx for the report, but I'm reject this as Not-a-Bug.
