Sorry if this is off-topic. I can't install SpamAssassin on my MS boxes
because when I run the following SA install command "perl Makefile.PL",
this is what is output "Perl v5.6.1 required--this is only v5.6.0,
stopped at Makefile.PL line 2."
Can I get around this? If I have to upgrade perl, is it easy and
foolproof? Can anyone send me the steps to upgrade? Off-list replys are OK.
