Interesting... It is apparently installing them somewhere it can't find... Here's the output from your suggested commands:

D:\>perl -MModule::ScanDeps Can't locate Module/ScanDeps.pm in @INC (you may need to install the M +odule::ScanDeps module) (@INC contains: D:/strawberry/perl/site/lib D +:/strawberr y/perl/vendor/lib D:/strawberry/perl/lib .). BEGIN failed--compilation aborted. D:\>perl -MModule::ScanDeps Can't locate Module/ScanDeps.pm in @INC (you may need to install the M +odule::ScanDeps module) (@INC contains: D:/strawberry/perl/site/lib D +:/strawberr y/perl/vendor/lib D:/strawberry/perl/lib .). BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
I can see folders for Getopt-ArgvFile-1.11 and Module-ScanDeps-1.13, along with Path-Class-0.33, at C:\Users\U0159691\perl5\lib\perl5\MSWin32-x64-multi-thread\.meta. The post is copied directly from the build log. I don't see any directories called UsersU0159691perl5 on my C: drive.

Does Strawberry or CPAN keep local install locations in a file I can access, to check if the paths are correct?

    Do you have two Perls installed on your machine? Since the output says @INC is D:/strawberry/perl/site/lib D:/strawberry/perl/vendor/lib D:/strawberry/perl/lib, while cpanm is attempting to install to C:\Users\U0159691\perl5\. Which Perl installation are you actually using? Try uninstalling the other. Have you tried using regular cpan instead of cpanm?

      Not long ago I updated Strawberry from 5.14 to 5.18; I uninstalled the old version first, but it's possible some things got left behind.

      As far as I can tell, I only have one version of Perl installed. I removed the perl5 folder before reinstalling 5.18, just prior to positing my question. Control Panel lists only one. I can only infer that the perl5 folder was installed along with Strawberry. Do you know if there is an insurgent program available to completely clean all Perl versions from a machine?

      Running cpan rather than cpanm results in a large number of failed tests
      Thank you for the suggestions, though.

        Something somewhere is still referring to C:UsersU0159691perl5. Config file, environment variable, something. The output of perl -V would help in further diagnosing, as well as perl -MData::Dumper -e "print Dumper \%ENV"
