I'm trying to use the Perl Package Manager (PPM) to install the Date::Calc module on Windows ME. I had the same problem under Windows 98 on the same machine.
Here's what I type at the DOS prompt:
ppm install Date::Calc
The program outputs:
Installing package 'Date-Calc'...
Bytes transferred: 57526
Norton CrashGuard reports:
PERL crashed due to a violation of system integrity. Windows might crash if you try to continue running this program now.
Dr. Watson Reports:
The application or one of its DLLs may have
overflowed an internal temporary buffer.
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? I don't see it listed as a bug at ActiveState.
