yes. I got same problem also with 5.6.1.
Installing 5.8 instead fixed it for me.

Hi zubinnt,
Check that you have a recent version of GD:
http://search.cpan.org/~lds/GD-2.12/GD.pm

If you version is too old, you should get a new one.

Cheers,
Stefan

PPM> install gd
Version 2.06 of 'GD' is already installed.
Remove it, or use 'verify --upgrade GD'.

Uninstall v. 5.6.1.
Install 5.8 instead, can be downloaded from
http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/Windows/5.8/ActivePerl-5.8.3.809-MSWin32-x86.msi
After Installing run command below to install GD

ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages/GD.ppd

will install GD 2.12 for Perl 5.6.1, in case you still want it.

I recall having installed a version of Image::Magick with the correct perl libraries for 5.6.1, but I can't seem to find my notes on that anymore.
I know I googled around for it, and found it eventually.

I know this module has helped me a lot in finding modules not available from activestate:
http://search.cpan.org/author/PODMASTER/PPM-Repositories-0.09/Repositories.pm

See the source of that module for a list of alternative ppm repositories.

this disussion is closed,

the original question was about the code ...

however, it's not the code that is the problem it is active perl. the latest installation of active perl solves everything

Aasker solved problem another way ??

I said in a comment that  "yes. I got same problem also with 5.6.1. Installing 5.8 instead fixed it for me."
And asker did just that.
So I do not agree that asker solved problem another way.
