Previous Perl versions can be found here: Active Perl Previous Versions
I have just started using XMail 1.22 on Windows 2000 and I'm considering Spamassassin. I will try to follow the instructions here.

Okay, uninstalled the version I had and installed 5.8.6, rebooted and tried again with the Perl updates.

Still fails with same error. Used both the DOS prompt and the Perl Package manager.

Then i have no idea what the problem is. But it lies with Pearl. Maybe a clash in software? What else is running on the server?
In what order did u install the software?
You sure this server is connected to the internet?

That is the only problem i can think of.

I loaded a virtual server with 2000 and 2003 to test this installer again and everything worked 100 %. Even the PPM Updates....

Thanks for all the help. I have no idea why my system isnt cooperating, but it was worth the try.

Fixed my Perl problems. Seems the repositories were not connecting properly.

Now on to the next set of issues. What did you use for a compiler?

I have the Watcom C/C++ compilers and am getting invalid type errors.

What do you want to compile?

Nothing needs to be compiled. Just follow the How To Step by step and that is it. The How To does not say anything about compiling anything.

To quote original message in this thread:

Answer the questions as they are asked. Remember you can NOT build spamc without a C compiler installed and its environment set up.

This is just before the first nmake command which oddly enough is where I get the first compile errors.

You need to read this in context. You CAN NOT Compile. That is why you need to Answer NO to the Question of compiling.

Normally people that read this does not have a C Compiler. But i will change the original How To.

But the point is...You do not Need to compile anything.

That is why yours is not working.

Ah, once again the 2x4 makes contact with head. Once I stopped answering yes to the compile question all went well.

Of course, it didnt end that way. Both the nmake commands ran with out errors, just some warnings about optional missing modules.

I ran the test commands as indicated and they all give the same set of errors:

"EADDRINUSE" is not exported by the Errno module
Can't continue after import errors at lib/Mail/SpamAssassin/DnsResolver.pm line
46
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at lib/Mail/SpamAssassin/DnsResolver.pm line 4
6.
Compilation failed in require at lib/Mail/SpamAssassin.pm line 76.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at lib/Mail/SpamAssassin.pm line 76.
Compilation failed in require at spamassassin line 79.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at spamassassin line 79.

Open for ideas on this one.

I also tried to compile and ran into problems. I abandoned Spamassassin and now I'm using ASSP. See here: ASSP It works for me smile.gif
