Curious. I wonder why I'm getting this message then, when running 'cpan Tk':
Going to read 'C:\Perl64\cpan\Metadata'

Warning: Cannot install tk, don't know what it is.
Try the command

Is there an easy way a Windows user could install this package? Pardon my ignorance but I'm not up on running make builds on Windows (7).
Hmm, never mind, might have been an uppercase (read: user) error.
But am now getting this:
Writing Makefile for Tk
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
nmake -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
If you are running Activestate perl your Tk build from CPAN won't go as well as if you are running Strawberry perl.
Check out the Tutorial from holli regarding ppm modules and repositories. There are a number of useful Activestate style workarounds there. You will also need to know what version of make your system has. Type the following into a command prompt.
