Installing Missing Perl Modules

A script may fail with a "Can't locate [MODULE/Name].pm in @INC (you may need to install the [MODULE::Name] module)" error.


This means that the script requires a module that is not installed on the current server. To install the module, open an Administrator command prompt and type the following command:

ppm install [MODULE-Name]

The module is the same name as the error message above with and "::" replaced with "-".

e.g. if the error message said "(you may need to install the Peanut::Brittle module)" then the command to install the module would be "ppm install Peanut-Brittle"
