in reply to Creating Win32 Service

ActiveState perl 5.10 has SSL support. (5.8 does not without using other ppm sites).
Use ppm instead of CPAN with ActiveState perl.

    I've got perl 5.10 from ActiveState, and although it claims to be supporting SSL, it only provides Crypt::SSLeay, and trying to install IO::Socket::SSL, Net::SSLeay or anything usefull fails.

    Since I encountered more problems with installing modules I would prefer some more CPAN-friendly distribution.
