If you are using activeperl you should use the PPM application to install modules, but I have no idea if that particular module is available via PPM. If the module does not have any C code in it you can just use it via the 'lib' pragma. I can't tell you why your install is failing because I never try to install modules how you are trying with activeperl.

While you had a lot of the tests failing, I am pretty sure that this is one major reason for the failure. It looks like you don't have nmake installed and it might very well be needed considering this is a "fatal error". I would search google for a windows implementation of nmake and install it.

Also, what version of Perl are you using? (ie: ActiveState, Strawberry Perl)
And also, which version of that distribution are you using?
