You mean you ran the setup_xampp.bat file twice when installing the addon not once - as per the readme-addon-perl.txt file?tryin_to_learn wrote:I've tried rebooting, tried running the setup_xampp.bat file
You can choose "without mod_perl" if you know that you don't need it, or "with mod_perl" if you know that it is needed - if you don't know either way, then select "without mod_perl".readme-addon-perl wrote:ENGLISH (re-translated): Simply extract this add-on in your current XAMPP-Directory.
All older files are overwritten.
Then start the "setup_xampp.bat" to configure XAMPP with Perl (once).
Now restart Apache.
After the restart, run the "setup_xampp.bat" file again (twice), this time you can choose either "with mod_perl" or "without mod_perl".

tryin_to_learn wrote:Ok, we're getting somewhere. The script runs with 5.8.8. Can I just replace my 5.10.0 version in xampp with 5.8.8 or does the script need to be changed to accommodate 5.10.0? If I use 5.8.8, can I just delete everything in the xampp\perl\ folder and copy everything from the 5.8.8 perl folder to the xampp\perl folder? Would I need to run setup_xampp.bat again?
I noticed in an earlier post that you said you had installed the current perl add-on over an existing one. This is the first time I've ever installed perl so there was no older version on my machine - could that be causing the problem?
Thanks so much for your help, btw. I've really appreciated it.
I can understand your frustration with this issue but are we talking about the Installer version, as I have no experience using a Windows Installer version to either install or upgrade - I always use the 7zip versions for more control over what can and can't be achieved and so I am not reliant on a mere installers author's interpretation of what I want to do.tryin_to_learn wrote:One thing I found very frustrating in trying to overwrite the newer Perl with any other Perl files was that I would get alerts saying that I already had the latest version of Perl on my machine and it wouldn't allow me to download anything else on top of it. That doesn't kick in with the solution you're suggesting?
