I didnot install PPM separately. It was inbuilt, when installed perl 5.6.
I just downloaded the win32::API-0.40 version and tried to install using PPM -- ppm intsall Win32-API.ppd.
Can you please let me know the installation steps to install win32-API-0.75 on perl5.6??

Thanks for the reply..
Actually I need to install win32::API module on a PC where MS Visual Studio is not installed and the perl version is 22.214.171.1245.
So, I downloaded win32-API module into my local PC where VS and perl 5.12 are installed and compiled by giving following commands:
3)make blib folder as Tar.gz file
After Compilation is done, I moved this tar file to destination PC and run below command:
1)ppm install Win32-API.ppd
Here from your reply I am expecting that, since I compiled with perl version 5.12, I am getting the error. Isn't it?
I will try with perl version 5.6 and post the results.

A guide to installing modules for Win32, which touches on binary compatibility. This isn't going to work. I can't help feeling we're going round in circles. You need to spend the time to read and understand the responses you've been given.
That will never work. A Perl DLL made for one version of Perl is NOT compatible with any other version of Perl. You have to install 126.96.36.1995 on the computer with Visual C/Studio. Then compile the module. Then copy it to the original computer with 188.8.131.525.
