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

I tried installing Image::Magick module using ppm package('ppm install image-magick'). But image-magick.ppd is not available in Activeperl repository. How do I install it using ppm package? Please give me the url which has the ppd for this module

Thanks & Regards

    Looking at the instructions on installing image magick on windows, I saw this:
    NOTE: As of ImageMagick 5.4.8, the official ImageMagick windows installer includes PerlMagick for ActivePerl. Hence I will no longer be providing new binaries of PerlMagick from this site. The official distribution is available from
    (PerlMagick == the Image::Magick module)

    I was able to install it no problem?

    PPM interactive shell (2.2.0) - type 'help' for available comman PPM> search image-magic
    Packages available from PPMServer: Image-Magick [0]
    PPM> install Image-Magick
    Install package 'Image-Magick?' (y/N): y

    Installing package 'Image-Magick'... Downloading ead/Image-Magick.tar.gz ... Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Image\Magick\ Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Image\Magick\Magick.dll Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Image\Magick\Magick.exp Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Image\Magick\Magick.lib Installing C:\Perl\html\site\lib\Image\Magick.html Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Image\ Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Image\Magick\autosplit.ix
      I dowloaded the latest full PPM package and followed the instructions given in '' site. But when I tried to install it by
      C:\temp>ppm install Image-Magick.ppd
      I got an error saying
      Error: no suitable installation target found for package Image-Magick.
      What do I do now?

      Thanks & Regards

        Do you not understand the error message? What is inside Image-Magick.ppd

    Two suggestions 1st) Take a look at the PPM-Repository package it will allow you to add almost every repository out there, well depending on your version of PPM ( there is a bug that the Author hasn't fixed yet to auto add them ), then search again. 2nd) I would google it and search for the .ppd this should turn up sites that have the ppm for you to install from.

      I believe that I have every major PPM repository added, and a search of them all doesn't turn up a PPM for I::M.

      Update: That is, not for 5.8.x. It appears to be available for 5.6.x.

        PerlMagick exe has only ppd for 5.8.x
