How do I install the NetSNMP.ppd package for MSWin32?

Why do I get "ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform" when I run the command ppm install NetSNMP.ppd?


Modify the NetSNMP.ppd package so that the NAME attribute of the ARCHITECTURE tag contains the version of ActivePerl currently installed on your system.

For example, if the command perl -v returns:

This is perl, v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread ...

then you would modify the <ARCHITECTURE> tag in NetSNMP.ppd as follows:

<ARCHITECTURE NAME="MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.10" />

Executing the command ppm install NetSNMP.ppd should now work.
