I'd like to install movable type locally to test it out (perl 5.004_04, cgi, and mysql required)
( http://www.movabletype.org )

Is this possible on a Win XP Pro box?
Is this a ridulous question - please say no even if it is.

Thanks,
Sean
n.b. I may need some help if it's a yes :-)

Okay, I had found this one that looks pretty good:
http://www.fortysomething.ca/mt/etc/archives/004617.php

I was hoping someone might have had some specific experience with it on Windows - just in case I get into trouble.

Cached version shows up blank as well, but thanks.

Active state (www.activestate.com) provides a good version of Perl for use under Windows.

In order to install MoveableType, and have it work, you will also need to install the Apache HTTP server.  You can get this from www.apache.org

You'll probably want to run Apache as a daemon.  After installing Apache and Perl, you'll want to install MoveableType by following the directions here:

Thanks - I have both those links already from the install procedure above.

The problem I'm specifically facing is MT - the installation instructions are weak for anyone used to working in a GUI environment, and leave much to be desired. I was hoping someone had experience withe process.

Thanks,
Sean
