Hi,

I'd like to script in Perl, but when I create a script action in Watch and select Perl as the language, I get "Script engine selected could not be found on the machine. Are you sure you want to use this one?" Perl (Strawberry Perl) is installed on the machine and is included in the system path.

Thanks in advance,
--Lance

Lance,

I believe PlanetPress Watch is meant to work with the "standard" Perl distribution, which is ActivePerl. Maybe you can try using ActivePerl instead of Strawberry Perl, and see if it works better.

Regards,
Rapha
