Karl and friends,
I have a question and a problem relating to tlmgr.
As a long time user of TeX and friends I installed Texlive 2009 in 2010 on my
then new Win XP laptop. More recently I realized that tlmgr has ceased to
function. Quite simply, whenever I try to invoke it, Windows responds with
perl.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
The current tug.org/texlive/tlmgr pages indicate that there is a fix for
disaster recovery. Specifically it suggests to download update-tlmgr-latest.exe
I have done that. running that executable produces that same message, that
perl.exe has encountered a problem...........
is there a simpler fix, save for a clean install of TeXlive (??)
I really like my present installation, and have been very productive with this.
any suggestions are very much appreciated.
