Installing NMake 1.5
This section provides a tutorial example on how to install the 'make' utility on Windows, NMake 1.5, to help installing the RPC::XML Perl module.
Based on the documation, the installation process of RPC::XML module requires the "make" utility. Since I am using a Windows system now, so I need to download a "make" utility for Windows. John Bokma has written a nice instruction on how to download and install Microsoft NMake at: http://johnbokma.com/perl/make-for-windows.html. I used the following steps to install NMake 1.5 on my local machine.
1. Download nmake15.exe at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q132084
2. Double click on nmake15.exe. It will generate 3 files: nmake.exe, nmake.err and readme.txt.
3. Copy nmake.exe and nmake.err to \perl\bin, which is where ActivePerl executable files are located.
4. Now try the nmake command in a command window. If you see the following message, NMake 1.5 is installed correctly:
>nmake Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 1.50 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp 1988-94. All rights reserved. NMAKE : fatal error U1064: MAKEFILE not found and no target specified Stop.
