in thread Can't locate Convert/

Yahoo, finally am making some progress. I was able to do a force install - it looks like I learned a few items. When running cpan with strawberry perl - if you go to the start menu, and you'll see an icon that says perl command - that is where you'll want to run. Also - running cpan -I DBD::JDBC will not work on windows, nor will cpan -fi DBD::JDBC - rather running the following appears to work: CPAN> install DBD::JDBC CPAN> force install DBD::JDBC The full word "install" & "force" need to be typed out. So, I still need to look into - but am getting closer.

    Forcing an install isn't always wise, especially if you don't understand why it's failing. The testers matrix has passes for Strawberry perl, where the prerequisites are satisfied.

      Yes, probably not the best decision, to run the forced install. However, prior to running the forced install, I suspected it may fail, as syphilis had noted prior, "Those tests apparently fail because java.exe cannot be found:". So - on another computer - plan on looking into ensuring that java.exe is on the computer prior to the install.
