in reply to Problems installing Archive::Tar::Streamed on Win32

As the author of Archive::Tar::Streamed, I really appreciate the feedback. I need to make the Makefile.PL more platform sensitive, and work properly on Windows.

Please can you raise a bug ticket on so that I can track it.

    Not really. DV's problem is that his perl install is severely broken. He does not have nmake, tar, or Archive::Tar installed, on top of which his Config seems to be misconfigured ... he would have trouble installing any module, not just yours
      Hi True. My nmake is throwed me some fatal error. but Archive::Tar looks good. Archive::tar::streamed does not install. i am still working for a solution DV
        ...but Archive::Tar looks good

        Yes, but Archive::Tar should have come as part of ActivePerl - ie, you didn't have to install it.

        If it's just a matter of installing Archive::Tar::Streamed, then you could simply copy into the C:/activeperl5.6/site/lib/Archive/Tar folder. You may need to create that folder. (Note that this should work only because Archive::Tar::Streamed is a pure perl module.)

        As Anonymous Monk pointed out, your perl installation is screwed. Given that perl is in C:/activeperl5.6, it makes no sense for MakeMaker to go looking for M:/ACTIVE~1.6/lib/CORE/perl.h .

        Note for rinceWind: I thought that there would be a ppm at ActiveState for this module - but it fails to build under their automated build procedure. I think it would build fine for them if the default in the Makfile.PL was "none" instead of "tar" - it certainly builds fine for me on Win32 both with and without "tar".
