Re: Win32-GuiTest for ActivePerl 5.8.4 ?
- Hi gilberth,
U could follow the below steps to get it done...
Steps to install Win32:GUI in Windows 2k
1.Download the Win32:GUI1.50.2-ad.zip file(from
2.Since Windows has no make, which is needed to build the Perl
you have to download NMake 1.5 from the Microsoft Knowledge Base,
article 132084 page
3.Nmake needs cl.exe(Compiler) & link.exe(Linker). These files are
available in Microsoft Visual Studio.
Hence copy those & place it in C:\Perl\bin
4.NMake1.5 is a self extractable exe, which will provide 3 files
(nmake.exe, nmake.err, and readme.txt).
Move nmake.* to c:\perl\bin .
5.Provide appropriate Environment variables (PATH,INCLUDE & LIB) so
that it points to the
perl directories correctly.
6.Now execute the following commands
// This batch file comes with MS Visual Studio. Running
// it first might help with various compilation problems.
vcvars32.bat perl makefile.pl
Once you have extracted the files enter the directory of your
machine, enter PPM and do like this:
PPM interactive shell (2.0) - type 'help' for available commands.
PPM> install C:\temp\win32-guitest.ppd
Install package 'C:\temp\win32-guitest.ppd?' (y/N): Y
Retrieving package 'C:\temp\win32-guitest.ppd'...
While installing u may come across with the following errors:
1. NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'cl.exe' : return code '0x2'
2.NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '..\..\..\ob\bin\idl.exe' : return
To get resolved, check the Environment variables & also make sure
that u have Cl.exe & Link.exe & Nmake.exe, Nmake.err files in
Get back to me, if u have any errors..
