Installing Win32-GuiTest Module

Good morning all,
I had to reinstall Perl (ActivePerl 5.10.0 Build 1004) on my computer (Windows XP), the install went fine. however, I'm having issues loading Win32-GuiTest using the repository in PPM. the steps i took are:

1. saved Win32-GuiTest-1.50.5.zip from the search.cpan.org website
2. unzipped in the location c:/Perl/Win32-GuiTest
3. opened the PPM window and went to Edit-Preferences and clicked the repositories tab
4. i put in Name: Win32-GuiTest and put the correct path in the Location

When i click the 'Add' button it says:
Downloading Win32-GuiTest packlist...done
Downlading Win32-GuiTest Win32-GuiTest PPD...done
Synchronizing Database..done

but the package is not there.

i even opened up cmd.exe, went to the Win32-GuiTest folder and typed in:
'ppm install Win32-GuiTest.ppd' and it says:

'ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to install for this platform'

Can someone please help me get this package installed? what am i doing wrong?

Thank you,

open the PPM GUI, you can open it by going to "run" and entering PPM (I think) or opening the activeperl/activestate folder and finding PPM and clicking on it. Let it run and download the pack list from the repository and see if the module you are interested in is listed. If it is you click on it to "mark" it then you click on another button to actually install it. See the PPM help files for more details.

Problem solved. after lot more research, i found that for some reason installing Win32-GuiTest on the ActivePerl 5.10 version does not work. i unistalled this version and installed ActivePerl 5.8.8 and it worked!

Which Activestate Perl 5.8.8 version you were using? I have the same problem here when I attempt to install Win32-GuiTest. I use Perl 5.8.8 (824 build) with Win32-GuiTest-1_50.5.zip.

bdunnells, i truly apologize! i have not been logged on to this account for a long while (i've been on other projects), and i did not know you sent the question. you may not need the answer now, but someone else might need it so here it is: i installed Perl 5.8.8 Build 822 and installed Win32-GuiTest-1_50.5.zip. This worked for me.
