Dealing with error "The crypt() function is unimplemented due to excessive paranoia"

When running FDSE in admin mode, you may encounter this error:

The crypt() function is unimplemented due to excessive paranoia. at (file) line (line).

(The exact line number and message text may vary.)

In order to log in to the admin page, your version of Perl must support the crypt function. Some older versions of Windows Perl did not support this function under the mistaken belief that supporting it would violate cryptography export laws. All new versions of Windows Perl from ActiveState do support the function.

You must upgrade your server's version of Perl to one that supports crypt in order to use this script. See System requirements.
