      Have you run the install.pl script successfully?  This is what creates the database tables, and creates the codestriker.pl script.

      Hi david,
      I used the above link to install Active perl .It worked fine in Windows XP.And it got installed.

      IN windows 2000, i couldnt install packages(DBI,Template-Toolkit,Authen-SASL).Error i am getting while installing those packges is

      Error: Can't call method "list_files" on an undefined value at C:/Perl/site/lib/
      PPM/Archive/Tar.pm line 31.
      According to http://bugs.activestate.com/show_bug.cgi?id=40750 this link
      its a bug in Active perl when used in Windows 2000 and it seems its not fixed.

      can u suggest me any other version of active perl which can be used with Windows2000 so that i can install ppm packges without fail.

      Thanks in advance.

      priya.

        What an annoying problem.. I can only suggest you install the latest, and try to install CGI.pm manually.

        Cheers,
        David

        Try using the ppm tool itself - it could be that a more recent version is available.
