in reply to Installing Win32::API on windows

Looks like a proxy issue and all you need to do is set HTTP_PROXY evironment variable.
c:\ set HTTP_PROXY=<yourpoxy>
or to unset ( I have mine set for work ) and have to unset it at home to nothing.
c:\ set HTTP_PROXY=

Oddly, proxy and firewalls are not mentioned in the perldoc for ppm on my version of AS Perl (5.8.3), this is asked a lot though

      Holli, I think you need to read my post more carefully, I said that perldoc ppm did not have the answer. Your link to the active state ppm faqs is not the link to the perldoc for ppm. PodMaster correctly (IMO) suggested what the problem was AND suggested the SOPW use perldoc ppm to find the answer, and that is not where it is mentioned and that is why I mentioned it. It would be very helpful if your link was in the SEE ALSO section of the ppm perldoc. If you would like me to email you a dump of perldoc ppm I will be happy to prove it to you. The link you added is helpful, but that data is NOT in my AS 5.8.3 ppm perldoc version which I specified in my post.
        Ah well, I thought with perldoc you meant the html-documentation that comes with AS Perl, I wasn't even aware that there is a perldoc command for it. The html-docs are the same as they are on AS's website, hence the link.
