Can't Install Win32::Daemon on Server 2003

    Hi Guys,

     

     I'm running a 32-Bit Win 2003 server that I'm trying to install the Win32::Daemon module onto to allow me to install ASSP (anti-spam for mail server). I'm getting the error message "ppm install failed: the ppd does not provide code to install for this platform"

     

     To me that says that it won't work on the OS, but I was lead to believe that it should work on 2003. Is this not the case, or is something else amiss?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Did you ever manage to get win32::daemon installed on the windows 2003 server? I am having trouble doing it.

    Win32::Daemon installs on W2k3 just fine. We have it running on several of these servers. However it depends upon what version of Perl you are running.

    Try:
    ppm install http://www.roth.net/perl/packages/win32-daemon.ppd

    If that fails then come back here and report your perl version number (run perl -v).

    Alternatively you can try running the new beta by manually installing it. Read this thread for details:

    Hi,

    I'm new to pearl but I got the same error . 

    in the cmd prompt I've type : 

    ppm install http://www.roth.net/perl/packages/win32-daemon.ppd

    I've got the error : ppm install failed: the ppd does not provide code to install for this platform.

     I'm using:

    You can run Win32::Daemon on Perl 5.10, but it is in beta and you need to manually install it.
