if you are using activestate perl you use the PPM application that comes with activestate to install modules. Open the activestate folder on the hard drive and the "documentation". You can also read them online at the activestate website.

If you have .gz files, extract all the files. In the command prompt go to the folder containing extracted files and run the following commands,

>perl makefile.pl

>nmake makefile

>nmake install makefile

If you don't have nmake installed in your system, download NMake from Microsoft Knowledge Base, article 132084 .Run the downloaded executable to extract the files to <drive>:\Perl\bin.

Did you even happen to read the link that I posted? If you are using Active State Perl, then you can use PPM to install the packages. You can find documentation on PPM over at the Active State website. Believe me that using PPM is MUCH preferable to building the modules by hand.
