Windows Installation Instructions

Padre on Strawberry Perl


Extract all the files in and rename the main directory to be c:\strawberry. As this is not a "portable" version the location is fixed.

Then you can rub c:\strawberry\padre.bat and it should open Padre.

Due to a wx related bug the editor part of Padre will be a very small window inside the full window of Padre. To fix this make padre full-screen and change it back to its normal size. That should fix this temporary issue.

For more convenience you might also want to change the PATH environment variable to include the following 3 directories: c:\strawberry\c\bin c:\strawberry\perl\site\bin c:\strawberry\perl\bin

Then you can launch padre by typing padre in the cmd window and you can also use perl from the command window.

Binary Installation

The most convenient way to get Padre is via the Padre Standalone package. See the page for details.

Installation from CPAN

Depending on which version of Perl you use, there are different instructions:

On Windows, the installation of IPC::Run (0.82) hangs sometimes - install it using

  cpan> force install notest IPC::Run

Still Not Working?

Following the instructions on this page did not lead to a successful installation?
