    Hi,

    I'm trying to setup perl (I have ActivePerl 5.8.8) so I can install
    Bugzilla
    3.0.3 on Windows XP Pro, and Email-Send and Email-MIME-Modifier are
    the recquired packages.


    When I try to install the packages I get this message:


    C:\bugzilla>ppm install Email-Send
    ppm install failed: no package found

    same with Email-MIME

    I have already tried the method given in command prompt {ppm repo
    up--} but that doesnt work either.Any clues? Also tried to force the
    installation----No Go.
    I have also set up the http_proxy still no success.
    Thanks,

    You can check the build status of AS' ppms at
    http://ppm.activestate.com . In this case, the two dists you want have
    failed to build: it's not entirely clear to me why. Since both appear to
    be pure-Perl modules with pure-Perl dependancies, I would recommend
    installing them from CPAN:

    cpan -i Email::Send
    cpan -i Email::MIME::Modifier

    The CPAN client may ask you some questions; the default answers are all
    fine.
