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
