How do I update PPM?

2 New Member
I was using PERL 5.6.1.638 with the standard PPM. I upgraded to 5.8.8.817. When I start PPM and query * it reports "Querying target 1 (ActivePerl 5.6.1.538). How do I upgrade PPM. I need to update my DBI and DBD packages.

If you installed the latest version, then I wonder if it is something to do with your path. Find out if, when it was installed, it installed to a different directory, other than where the original install was. If so, then it didn't overwrite/update it, it simply installed a second version.

Unfortunately, even on Windows I don't use Active State. I prefer Strawberry Perl as it is more like Unix based Perl and you interact with CPAN directly, instead of a third party package manager.

Thanks for your reply. I was able to solve my problem by removing the two packages instead of uninstalling. PPM still reports the old version, but it seems to be working with new packages for 5.8.8.817. Go figure.
