RE: Install Validator on XP/IIS - partial success

Thanks Oliver 

I have already tried CPAN and various other places
All say JIS2K is available for Linux but not Windows
So I have commented it out

Also to get round the fact that 'ScriptAlias' is not available in
IIS I have changed the name of the 'check' file to 'check.pl'
And changed all the submit 'action' to explicitly require 'check.pl' with an
appropriate relative path (in php again)

I now get an error as follows:-
Content-type: text/html 
Software error:
Can't load 'D:/perl/site/lib/auto/SGML/Parser/OpenSP/OpenSP.dll' for module
SGML::Parser::OpenSP: load_file:The specified module could not be found at
D:/perl/lib/XSLoader.pm line 64.
 at D:/perl/site/lib/SGML/Parser/OpenSP.pm line 18
Compilation failed in require at d:\wwwroot\validator\httpd\cgi-bin\check.pl
line 61.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
d:\wwwroot\validator\httpd\cgi-bin\check.pl line 61.

the PMM manager GUI says XSLoader is not installed
but will not install it?

Nice, using php is not a bad idea here indeed.

Good point, these have only been required in recent releases, and we  
didn't check with David whether he had added the new modules to his zip.

should have what you need, although I'm not entirely sure how perl  
modules work on windows.

If that doesn't work, the alternative is to edit check.pl and comment  
out (with a # before the given line) the line requiring  
Encode::JIS2K. The validator would still work, you'd only lose  
support for some Japanese encodings.
