I was encouraged to read that you built almost everything and
it ran ok with Perl-5.8.8 so I gave it another shot. I have
MSVC-6.0 compiler. I used the shadowcat script to intall the
core stuff. It installs mosty from ppms but uses cpan for a
few things. That seemed ok except for 1 missing ppm which
I installed from cpan.
But task-catalyst has been a nightmare.
Almost every module failed because of missing dependencies.
So I make a list and manually installed the depencies from
cpan. After futzing with the order of things, most things
installed (I had to remove the inc/ directory on a few as
you mentioned) but still have problems with
had a zillion C errors, so installed v1.11 from ppm.
many tests ran but lots of these errors:

Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
Some of the above (e.g. Class-Throwable and DBIx-Class)
I found ppms for and installed those, but no ppm for
Authen::Htpasswd so not sure what to do there.
Also, I'd prefer to use the cpan packages directly as much
as possible to reduce my dependence on a middle-
Now I am having the same problem I had with an earlier
install -- when I run the tutorial_server.pl script, I get an
error message that starts:
Couldn't load "tutorial::View::TToolkit", "Invalid CODE attribute: Private

Any idea what that's about?
