I Googled the error, and found this: "... The error comes from a module compiled against threaded Perl while your Perl installation is not threaded... "

The Chilkat Perl module expects a Perl compiled for multi-thread. Too much of Chilkat nowadays relies on multi-threading, and therefore it's not feasible to try to support single-thread environments.
