Perl & OLE

keydet89 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is there are a Perl module available that provides access to OLE files, besides OLE::Storage? I'm not interested in automating Excel via Win32::OLE; rather, I'm interested in accessing files that have OLE format, such as IE session restore files, JumpLists, etc. Thanks.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      Thanks. C:\Perl>ppm install ole-storage_lite Downloading OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19...redirect Downloading OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19...failed 401 Authorization Required ppm install failed: 401 Authorization Required

        This is an HTTP error that has very little to do with Perl.

        Is your version of ActiveState Perl supported by ActiveState? Did you enter the appropriate credentials?

        If you are unwilling to pay for the ActiveState Perl support, consider installing the module by using the cpan command.

        It looks like your activestate perl has expired. Time to move to a newer supported version of perl. Which today looks like 5.16.3 and 5.18.2.

        What version is your perl?
