Yes, you require a C compiler to build the XS parts of the module. You can download the VC++ Toolkit here, you may also require some additional stuff from the Win32 SDK.

    Or, the easy way is to get a "ppm"ed package from this repository:
    http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/
    If you are unable to get to the repository, download & edit the ppd, to find where the corresponding .tar.gz package is,
    download it and create your own local repository.

      Thanks (++) to both of you. Both answers were helpful. I'll look more into J's answer later as its an area I want to learn more about, but at this juncture Olivier's answer gave immediate results. I ppm'd into the your suggested repository and it immediately installed (hassle free!), changed my program to utilise Blowfish and ran the encryption. Perfect! All done in less than a minute.

      A big cheers!

[Corion]: I feel that there is a talk somewhere in there, either about the structure and parts, or how I used several parts to get a complete whole.
[Corion]: Maybe I can still find something that is compatible with handlebars.js (which has JS precompilation) but allows for two-way data binding (which is great for the UI)
[Corion]: Two-way data binding means that if you change something in a text box, the corresponding variable in your Javascript gets updated immediately as well, and if you then change the variable, the corresponding text box also gets updated
[Corion]: That is a horrible approach that was also taken by Access, but if you have hooks that prevent automatic saving to the database, it is incredibly handy
