in reply to Cant install modules

I believe the problem you're having is that a PPD file for Net::SMTP does not exist (anywhere).

Have you tried installing using the CPAN shell? I find it much more reliable, if you have the appropriate MAKE utility (probably nmake).

It comes standard with ActiveState's distribution. Here's the command line:

>perl -MCPAN -e shell

It will ask you lots of questions to begin with, but once they're answered it should be configured properly going forward.

After you get it configured, try the following:

>install Net::SMTP
If there are any more problems after that, there is ample documentation for the CPAN module at perldoc CPAN or here at the Monastery.

Hope this helps!
