I try to implement this interesting solution for latexdiff and multiple files. There are other questions regarding missing perl scripts but I cannot relate them or their solutions to my problem (i.e. perl script not found)(perhaps because I am a beginner). However using...

  • Win7 (64-bit)
  • GitHub (Sourcetree, Git version 1.8.0msysgit.0)
  • MikTex 2.9
  • ActivePerl version
  • cygwin

I receive the following error:


I am a beginner but already checked that Algorithm-diff is installed:


algorithm-diff (perl) is installed

Can someone help? I cannot find the path /usr/lib/perl5.... Latexdiff is installed in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\latexdiff. Perl is installed in C:\progs\perlbut the folder lib\perl5is not there.


Tried to implement this solution for How to change @INC to find Perl modules in non-standard locations by adding C:\progs\perl\site\lib to the new Environment (User) Variables PERL5LIB and PERLLIB. It did work.
