    Error Installing

    I was wondering if someone could help me with an error I have. Im trying to install activestate perl onto my home computer. I have windows XP. During installation, the process stops because it says that it cannot create C:\Perl\auto\lib\sys. I tried to create that folder manually and it wouldnt let me do it. For some reason, I cant make a folder called sys....windows wont let me. I have looked into this problem all over the net and found others have had similar problems, yet no one can seem to figure out how to correct this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Error Installing

    Either you do not have full admin privileges, or you have some antivirus or antispyware software running that is blocking the word "sys" - which would be quite understandable.
    It is always best practice to turn off AV programs when installing after you have completely verified the installation programs to be clean.
