Seem to have fixed the problem with Standaloneblast.pm on mswin.
If you make these changes it should work (fingers crossed):
Change the line in sub exists_blast to:
#return (-e Bio::Root::IO->catfile($BLASTDIR, 'blastall'));
return (-e $BLASTDIR, 'blastall');
 Change the line in sub _runblast to (you probably need to get File::Spec
for this, since it is not in the standard activeperl dist.):
#my $commandstring = Bio::Root::IO->catfile($BLASTDIR,$executable) .
my $commandstring = File::Spec->catfile($BLASTDIR,$executable) .
That should do it (assuming that you have installed the blast properly and
set the environmentals- don't forget BLASTDATADIR).
