ActivePerl

Post by Animal » Fri Apr 15, 2011 10:40 am

So my installation of activeperl just stopped working yeserday, for no apparent reason. I was using my usual scripts, like dnm build, and went to launch an instance of DNM Build, and what greeted me was the usual command prompt window which promptly winked out of existence and never brought up the dnmbuild menus.

I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, and changing versions of activeperl, and even reinstalling dnmbuild.

I'm out of ideas.

Maybe you deleted srfdata.pm by accident?

worth a shot, but i ever even had the folder open.

it was working fine and then abruptly stopped

I even tried switching from ActivePerl to Strawberry Perl.

No luck.

Can't perl be run on a server or something?


Edit: Surfdata.pm was present when i checked

Edit2: So in a fit of frustration i completely deleted DNMbuild surfdata.pm and uninstalled perl completely.

after doign this i was able to start all over again and get it working.
