Bundles and offline installation issuesby decebel (Acolyte)

decebel has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been struggling with a simple task for offline installation of libraries and I am running into various issues. Fixing one issue brings up something else. I might be doing something silly that does not seem obvious to me at this point.
The issue is, installation of a Bundle module from offline on windows seems to be an issue for me.
Some details: My application requires some CPAN modules such as POE, Log4perl and all these modules and the application modules are downloaded and kept locally.
I am configuring MyConfig.pm so that urllist points to this path where the modules are downloaded.
Also, I have created a Bundle module and in this module I list all the modules I need as part of the installation process.
MySetup.pm has POE, Log4perl and my custom modules mentioned in the POD section as required by Bundle specification.
The cpan shell starts looking at the path authors/id/R/RC/RCAPUTO/POE-1.267.tar.gz in c:\Users\Demouser\libs
Why does cpan shell do that? Why doesn't it simply look at c:\Users\Demouser\libs for the modules? Am I missing configuring some other variables here...Appreciate your help Gracias Dece
