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

    Installing Tk (804.030)
    ERROR You do not have 'make' in your path -- 'CPANPLUS::Dist::MM' not availabl
    e
    Please check your config entry for 'make'

    Error installing 'Tk'
    Problem installing one or more modules
    

      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

        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!
