Hello Anonymous,

an (apparently pretty common) error is that you use a (bugged?) version of the module Alien-wxWidgets together with ActiveStatePerl.
I first tried 0.43 from CPAN together with ActiveStatePerl and that didn't work.
Although someone said that 0.43 works fine with StrawberryPerl, I'm not sure about that. I did some "research" on the web and someone said that you should use 0.39.
I deleted the 0.43 version and installed the 0.39-one => everything workes fine.
If you have another error, a little bit more information would be useful ;)

    Seconding the recommendation for Strawberry Perl; I've been using ActiveState (sporadically) and it failed the CPAN installation of Wx, so I loaded Strawberry and it worked with no further ado.
