I installed the latest Slimserver and it gave me the following error message:

"Can't locate perl58.dll"

"Make sure the ActivePerl bin directory is in your path"

I'm using Windows XP SP2; any help would be appreciated

I had this. I then downloaded the zip file rather than the executable, which went in OK when I'd turned off the slim and slimserver processes.

I installed it on a different computer (Windows XP SP2) and it gives a similar error about the perl58.dll file. I don't think this is a coincidence, so there may be something wrong with the .exe file at the download site.

I also had this. Is it ok to just ignore it?

The solution was easy enough: I uninstalled Slimserver; searched for perl58.dll and found it in the Windows Temp folder, copied it to Windows/System, reinstalled Slimserver and this time got no error message.
