    Hi, I am using the module Win32-GuiTest-1.60-PPM58.tar.gz from the link and i am using ppd file to install it. I have copied all the modules on my local drive and from command prompt i am giving the below cmd. C:/>PPM install Win32-GuiTest-1.60-PPM58.tar.gz all the other modules are successfully installed with this command.

      PPM58 modules are not suitable for Perl 5.14. You will need to find the corresponding PPM514 modules.

        It's better if you use strawberry perl on windows and cpan/cpanm to install module.

        Thanks for your time , i installed Strawberry perl 5.12 and i downloaded the correpsonding module for 5.12 and it installed fine..:).. A very good lesson , dont compile modules dedicated for different versions...
      So why don't you try what I suggested?
