Hi Paul,

Please try the version of Perl included with Greenstone on Windows: edit
the Greenstone "gligli.bat" file, find the line starting "set
PERLPATH=", and change it to

set PERLPATH=C:Program FilesGreenstonebinwindowsperlbin

(assuming Greenstone is installed in the default location). Do you still
get the errors now?
