      Hello,

      I am new to this so any help will be much appreciated.

      When attempting to install, I get the following error:

      "Error installing package 'win32-guitest.ppd': Read of ./ failed"

      The syntax I am using (windows 98 command prompt) is:

      "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\fred>ppm install win32-guitest.ppd"

      The zip file has been extracted in the following manner:

      Directory of C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\fred

      Any ideas as to what's wrong?

      Thanks,

        * Are you able to install other perl modules on that machine using
        ppm?
        * Are the TMP and TEMP environment variables set?
        * What version of perl are you using (perl -v).

        I normally use ActiveState 5.6.0 (build 616).

        Hope this helps,
        Ernesto.

          Thanks, Ernesto.  Other packages install fine using the same technique.  I was using an older version of Perl, however, and after upgrading to 5.6, it's working fine now.  Thanks for your quick reply.
