Problem installing the Win32-daemon.ppd module for perl Can't Post

I am trying to install the Win32-daemon.ppd module for perl.
I try the following, but it gives the corresponding error message:


C:\Perl\bin>ppm install http://www.roth.net/perl/packages/win32-daemon.ppd
ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform

How do I get the Win32-daemon.ppd installed for perl?

What platform are you trying to install it on?

Is it the 64 bit version? If so, then that's why the installation is failing.

You might want to try contacting Dave Roth. Provide him with your perl version and the Operating system and as much info on your perl installation (perl -V)

The module installed OK for me on my old W98 test server. I used the GUI PPM instead of the command line interface but I don't think that should make a difference. So I suspect its something to do with how your version of perl was installed. Contacting Roth might help you figure out the problem.
