Task::OTRS::Win32 - Almost all of the modules required for installing OTRS Help Desk on win32.
This is just a Task module to install dependencies. There's no code to use or run.
Installing this module will also install almost all the modules you'll need to run OTRS on Win32. This module pulls in all the modules specified in Task::OTRS and then adds all modules needed specifically for use on Windows. This includes modules to install the Scheduler service, as well as modules needed for CRONw.
Note that OTRS itself also ships some CPAN modules in Kernel/cpan-libs, these modules will not be required by Task::OTRS. See for the bundled list of modules in OTRS Module::OTRS::CoreList.
The only module that you need to run OTRS but that will not be installed is the database driver, because OTRS supports multiple database backends. Please note that if you install this module on Strawberry Perl this is generally not needed, because it ships with drivers for MySQL, PostgreSQL and ODBC.
So after you're done installing Task::OTRS::Win32 you might also want to install the database driver for your DMBS of choice:
Note that installing these drivers can require installation of database libraries on your system as well.
All modules that will be installed are listed below. Note that if such a module is already on your system, we will not install it again.
Apart from not installing the database dependencies, installing Task::OTRS::Win32 will get you possibly more modules than you'll be needing. For instance, if you use postfix for mail delivery and sending, you might not be needing Net::POP3 and Net::SMTP. Also, in case you don't care about generating PDF files with OTRS, you don't need PDF::API2. That said, installing Task::OTRS::Win32 can help in setting up OTRS more quickly.
This module will install all modules for the current version of OTRS, 3.1.x. It could be possible that for 3.2.x the requirements change. It would be feasible that by then I'll release specific Task:: modules for specific OTRS versions.
