Installing Perl Modules From CPAN

For Windows Servers Where You Own or Control the Whole Server

(For other situations, see the Perl Modules main page.)

If you're using ActivePerl in order to run Perl scripts on your Windows server, you can use its included "ppm" command to install or upgrade Perl modules.  But you may find that the versions available via ppm aren't quite up to date, and CPAN has newer versions.

But you can still install those newer versions into your ActivePerl installation.  Just download and unzip the "ModuleName.tar.gz" file from CPAN.  At this point, you may be able to get away with simply copying any *.pm files from here into your C:\Perl\lib\ directory (keeping subdirectories intact).  But if that doesn't work, the proper/official way to proceed is to open a command prompt and switch to the directory where you unzipped the module, and run "perl Makefile.pl" there.  Then run "nmake" followed by "nmake test" and finally "nmake install".  (You can get nmake from Microsoft if you don't already have it; just download the file and unzip it into your C:\Windows\ directory.)

For example, to upgrade your CGI module:

  1. Open a command prompt (click Start, then Run, then type either cmd or command, press Enter) and type this to see what version of CGI.pm you currently have:
    perl -e "use CGI; print $CGI::VERSION";
    (The same command works on Linux/Unix/BSD systems, except use single-quotes instead of double-quotes.)
  2. Create a directory called C:\temp\ if you don't already have one.
  3. Download CGI.pm-3.25.tar.gz into your C:\temp\ directory, then unzip it; this should create the directory C:\temp\CGI.pm-3.25\.
  4. Open a command prompt (or use the same one from before) and type:
    C:
    cd \temp\CGI.pm-3.25\
    perl Makefile.pl
    nmake
    nmake test
    nmake install
    (This is the exact same procedure used on Linux/Unix/BSD systems, except that they use "make" instead of "nmake".)
  5. Repeat step #1 to check your CGI version and it should now be the new version.

Client Quotes

Why didn't I just do this from the get-go?  So much easier.  Thanks for your work.  FileChucker makes my work easier.
– Dominic M.
You've done a wonderful job with FileChucker and UserBase, and they have made a big difference to how our website runs.
– Nicholas H.
Do you know how rare it is to have a "canned" shopping cart that can easily do complex pricing options on a single item?  Basically, they don't exist!  I have looked.  Everywhere!  And the few that might even come close to CornerStore's functionality cost a fortune!
– Tashina P.
I want to thank you for your efforts on Userbase. It has become an integral part of our business and has allowed us to branch out and begin using automation on a lot of our processes. Userbase has become the gateway to advancement for our company's processes for our clients and employees.
The work, the thought and the organization you put into this app is incredible.
– Bruce C.
I just want to say you guys really stand alone in that you have a quality product and you provide genuine customer service.  It's sad but those qualities are seldom found separately, much less together.  Thanks again for your time and help.
– Alex S.
Just one word: Fantastic.  10-minute job to plug FileChucker into my app, and it now works a treat.  It's through the hard work by people like yourselves that make my job so much easier.  Congratulations on an outstanding product... Many many thanks.
– Sean F.
The amount of customization in the program is incredible.  I was able to integrate it into my existing page layout relatively simply.  I was also able to easily customize the look/feel to match the current site.
– Jason M.
FileChucker is a great drop-in solution for file uploads, and worth every penny of its very reasonable cost.  Encodable's support is excellent to boot.
– Loren A.
I just wanted to say that yours is the first product that I've tested so far that hasn't failed on handling uploads.  This is going to work for a print company, so they are handling nothing but large files and all the other solutions I've tried so far have not been reliable.  So far yours has been 100% successful in my tests.
– Kevin H.
Nice script, it's saving the day on our project.
– Aaron W.
I looked all over trying to find a simple cgi script.  I found that FileChucker was by far the best.  If you have issues with your hosting service's php.ini max upload size then this is the way to go.  Looking forward to future enhancements.
– Bob C.
I just installed the demo of your product and got it up and running in no time.  I searched high and low for a decent login script and thank God I found yours.
– Adrian F.
Thank you VERY much for all of your help.  You've really impressed me.  We have support agreements for other software that costs thousands of dollars / year (just for the support), and most of them aren't as helpful as you have been.
– Keith Y.
Our members think your software is fantastic...  I would recommend your software and your company to anyone.  Thanks for all your help.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
– Tommy A.
Thanks again for a great product and great support - beyond expectations.
– Greg S.
FileChucker is helping drive the backend of several high profile entertainment sites for people like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton.  We're also using it to drive backend file uploads for a multi-billion dollar banking institution.  It's a great product.  We've tried other "chucking" upload solutions with progress bars using flash and php, but nothing works as reliably as FileChucker.
– Michael W.
FileChucker is working great...  Clients love it.  Vendors love it.  We love it.
– Gerry W.
