Try the following repositories:
http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/
OR
http://trouchelle.com/ppm10/

Alternately, you can try to download from CPAN and install manually.

I tried installing but still it gives following error when am running the scipt using win32::GuiTest,
Can't locate loadable object for module Win32::GuiTest in @INC (@INC contains: C

@sneha9 You can check here to see if something has been uploaded to the ppm repository. To install ppm modules, you will want to read this.

My personal experience is that PPM lacks modules from CPAN due to porting issues. I migrated off of ActiveState Perl years ago and if I should ever need to develop on the Windows platform, I always use the Strawberry Perl distribution. It installs perl modules directly from cpan, without the need for them to be ported to a proprietary, 3rd party installer. Unless you are tied to ActiveState's Perl distribution, you might want to check it out.

Regards,

Jeff

When using Activestate's perl port, install MinGW which comes with a GCC compiler and then you can use cpan to install modules just like Strawberry Perl.

MinGW is in the 32bit 5.10 repositories and I think it's in the 5.8 repositories as well. If it isn't, you can get it here.
