Hi,

I am having problems installing XSH on a Win2K machine
(ActivePerl v.5.8.6)
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
xsh2-2.0.2-windows-ap580.zip and
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"
HREF="http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/scripts/" from
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
at all!

here's the output from PPM:
ppm> install XML-LibXML-Common
====================
Install 'XML-LibXML-Common' version 0.13 in ActivePerl
5.8.6.811.
====================

nt library tree
Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\XML\LibXML\Common.pm
Successfully installed XML-LibXML-Common version 0.13
in ActivePerl 5.8.6.811.

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.

Any help?
