I've downloaded ActivePerl-126.96.36.1998-MSWin32-x86 and tried to install it in Windows Vista. The msi package shows the following error
There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
The .bat that runs the installation in the zipped package shows this
Configuring c:\Perl/lib/Config.pm for use in c:\Perl...
Configuring Perl ...
Can't spawn "c:\Perl/bin/perl.exe": No error at Installer.bat line 211, <> line
Couldn't config c:\Perl/lib/config.pm: at Installer.bat line 211, <> line 5.
Is there any other way to install this version of perl in windows vista?
