Hey,

This pointy clicky person has just managed to get the perl version of the
server running on a win2k machine! Quite how I am not sure but it seems to
be working..

Issue is the winamp plug in is still not being recognised, I downloaded
ActivePerl 5.8.0.806.

Some of the commentary mentions missing modules, I guess this is the
case,how do I figure out whats missing and where do I find them.

Thanks

This has nothing to do with the Winamp plugin, but you might want to use
ActivePerl 5.6 instead since 5.8 has a nasty bug with streaming audio...

Be seeing you,
