Hm, getting a little closer, thank you, but I now get this:

    If you're using ActiveState perl you have to install a Compiler and build tools, they do not ship as default (though they do in Strawberry Perl). From the command prompt:

    ppm MinGW

    Once it's finished installing retry your Tk installation.

      thanks, but this didn't work. Not sure why I'm seeing the cpan repository with 0 packages.

      C:\Perl64\site\lib\Tk>ppm install MinGW
      Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done
      Updating ActiveState Package Repository database...done
      ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides MinGW

      Hi, thanks -- I tried installing MinGW and get this:

      C:\Perl64\site\lib\Tk>ppm install MinGW
      Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done
      Updating ActiveState Package Repository database...done
      ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides MinGW
      

      And the cpan repository appears empty:

      C:\working\ic-metrics\ICCrawler>ppm rep
      ┌────┬───────┬────────────────────────────────┐
      │ id │ pkgs  │ name                           │
      ├────┼───────┼────────────────────────────────┤
      │  1 │ 16711 │ ActiveState Package Repository │
      │  2 │     0 │ cpan                           │
      │  3 │   n/a │ bribes                         │
      │  4 │    13 │ wxperl                         │
      └────┴───────┴────────────────────────────────┘
       (3 enabled repositories)
      

      I appreciate your help -- sorry if I'm running around in circles!

        Then try the other thing, the one not involving mingw, the one not involving 32-bit perl
