I am installing cronW and for that I need Perl as hinted at in the installation file that came with the package. So I downloaded ActivePerl in this regard.

However I need to install .ppd file which is in the directory and the following command does not work,

perl ppm.bat install file.ppd

However, it complains with a message that install is not poosible with the platform

I am using Windows to be specific.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
