Hi Friends,

I am new to Perl, I want to install SOAP::Lite & SOAP::DateTime in Strawberry Per on WInXP platform.

The Path to my perl directory is: "C:\Program Files\OTRS\StrawberryPerl\perl\bin"

I tried doing it through CPAN, but when I provide command "install SOAP::Lite" what hapnd is, it creates another directory at:"C:\strawberry\cpan\build\SOAP-Lite-0.710.08-hnVw2t" and then I see an error message-

Error On Command prompt:

Re: [grigo] SOAP::Lite Installation on WinXP

Strawberry perl installs itself to c:\strawberryperl by default and there is no option to change that last time I installed it, which was recently. I recommend you uninstall strawberry perl and reinstall it like it should be installed, then you should be able to install modules.
