I want to convert my perl script to an executable to run on Windows. In the past I have used perl2exe, but now I cannot get this option to work so I'm trying PAR::Packer.
However, I cannot get this to install. When I run cpan>install PAR::Packer I get the following. (I omitted all of the stuff that seemed to work) Last night I searched the web for hours and haven't found the answer.
