I have installed Eclipse, Java JRE and Perl on my Windows 7 machine.  I am trying to install the Perl Integration components into eclipse.  So far, I think I have all of it installed with the exception of PadWalker.

I went to Bribes PPM Repository (http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppmdir.html), followed the directions for adding the repository to Eclipse, and then copied the installation command (ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/PadWalker.ppd) into a Command Prompt.  I then tried to run it, but got the following error:

C:\Users\Rolf>ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/PadWalker.ppd
ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform

What's wrong and how do I fix it?

What version of perl are you running?

  perl -v

And is there a particular reason that you're using Bribe's repository for PadWalker?  It's in the standard ActiveState repository.  Try a:

  ppm install PadWalker
