in reply to Problems obtaining nmake

[id://128077] -> A Guide to Installing Modules. 16 year old information. If you're working on windows make life easy for yourself, use Strawberry perl, and just use cpanm to install modules:

cpanm Module::Name

    Agree. I'm exclusively on Windows and moved from ActiveState to Strawberry in 2009 and never looked back. It just works the way Perl is supposed to work.

      Thank you. I am using a version of Perl from a commercial organisation since I use applications from that organisation that are based on this version of Perl. Therefore I do not see how changing to Strawberry Perl is an option I can easily take.

        This would have been helpful information to put in your post (How do I post a question effectively?). Why not contact whoever sold you this perl to see what they recommend regarding a toolchain?

        "... Perl from a commercial organisation..."

        Which commercial organization is it if i may ask? Or is this top secret?

        The one and only case i remember was Astaro.

        Best regards, Karl
