# ActiveState Perl on Microsoft Windows

ActiveState repository is currently having problems distributing recent Perl modules. You may wish to try Strawberry Perl instead.

Download ActiveState Perl, Community Edition, from https://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads. Install according to the directions on the site.

One of the tools that will be installed is the ActiveState Perl Package Manager, ppm. When you start this tool you can select additional packages to be installed on your system. Select the package App::Music::ChordPro::Wx and install it.

The ChordPro program wxchordpro will be installed by default in C:\ActiveState\Perl\bin. It can be executed using a command prompt. Alternatively, you can add a shortcut icon to the desktop.

You may now proceed to Getting Started.
