in thread Unable to enable - trying to add repositories to PPM (ActivePerl 5.12)
So the full error message is:
"All activated install areas are read-only. You cannot currently install or remove packages. Try enabling the uninitialized Areas in the Preferences dialog"
I don't use ActiveState and have never used the PPM GUI, have you tried the advice above for enabling these areas? Also, read the FAQ entry for this.
