I am having problems installing XSH on a Win2K machine
Issue 1 (Smallish) I have a paranoid firewall at work,
so PPM cannot connect to the internet directly. Even
though I downloaded and unzipped both
xmltools-bundle-ap580.zip PPM was still giving me
"unable to connect" errors. The fix was to remove the
lines that start with "<INSTALL EXEC="PPM_PERL"
files XML-SAX.ppd and XML-LibXSLT.ppd - without the
INSTALL EXEC ppm knew to read the files off the local drive
Issue 2 (Biggish) Your documentation says installation
instructions saying "During the installation of
XML::LibXML::Common module, you will be prompted for a
directory to install libxml2.dll"
That does not happen! PPM does not install libxml2.xml
here's the output from PPM:
ppm> install XML-LibXML-Common
Install 'XML-LibXML-Common' version 0.13 in ActivePerl
Downloaded 1003768 bytes.
Extracting 28/28: libxml2.dll
Files found in blib\arch: installing files in blib\lib
into architecture depende
nt library tree
Successfully installed XML-LibXML-Common version 0.13
in ActivePerl 18.104.22.1681.
Obviously, after that XSH fails to run. Moreover, even
when I manually extract libxml2.dll into my path,
attempt to run xsh- i gives an error box saying "The
procedure entry point __xmlGenericError could not be
located in the dynamic link library libxml2.xml". After
that, I gave up.
