Re: LedgerSMB on Windows

Thank you, Chris.  I will follow the path you laid out and see how far I get.  I have lots else going on, so it may be awhile before I have results on the various steps you laid out.

I installed 1.2.x and svn trunk on Windows 7, 32-bit once.  The process should be largely identical.

In general, your best bet is to install Vanilla Perl for 1.2.x or Strawberry Perl for trunk or 1.3.x.  From there, you can install  the application largely as you would on Linux (cpan Module::Install; perl Makefile.PL; make--- do not make install at this point). You will also need to have a web server (IIS and Apache should both work for either version), and PostgreSQL.

The only difference between Windows and Linux at that point is that you have to run the appropriate shebang utility (in dists/win32) for your version of Perl.

If you get stuck or need help, feel free to email this list.  If you need someone to actually do the install for you, there are a few of us who are probably quite happy to do so commercially.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
