williamp has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Monks,
I want to install modules on my windows box and use them with activestate. I tried using the ppm and followed the register setup information I found on your site. However when asked to search for modules it still returned that it could not find them.
I downloaded the windows versions module zipfiles manually. My question is;
Is the manual install simply a matter of creating a directory of the correct name and path and dropping the module into it? Thank you very much for your help
