    I was hoping to get some help with this error I am encountering while trying to install this module for use with VisualCamel. I used to use The GUILoft, but that has long since died out and I have been unable to find a good GUI app for Perl.  Anywho, here is the issue:
    Installing 2 packages failed

    ERROR: File conflict for 'C:/Perl/site/lib/Tk/demos/widtrib/'.
        The package Tk has already installed a file that package Tk-CursorControl
        wants to install.

    I try to install just TK::CursorControl and get the same error, obviously. Does anyone have a workaround or fix?

    Your OS and perl environment should be fine (I am running VisualCamel on Windows XP/perl 5.10.0)

    Are you using ppm to install Tk::Toolbar, copying the .pm file to the \perl\site\lib\Tk directory, or using some other method?

    I am using the ActiveState PPM to install.

    have you tried using -force to install Tk::Toolbar?

    ppm install --force Tk::Toolbar

    I have not. I will try now.

    Well that seemed to work for the install.  Thank you very much. I was using the PPM GUI and there is no force option available. I really did start my career in Unix, but I have obviously been in Windows tooooo long now.

    Thanks again stardogg!
