Can you tell us exactly what kind of error you are getting when the CPAN install module tries to access nmake? My first hunch with out any additional info would be that you do not the path to nmake properly defined in your Environment Variables.

To get to Environment Variables in Windows 2K do this:
1) Right Click on My Computer (on your Desktop)
2) Select Properties
3) Select Enivironment Variables
4) Highlight/Select/Click On Path
5) Click Edit
6) If it isn't already there put in the full path to nmake spaces and all where it says 'Variable Value'
7) Click OK

Hope this helps.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
