Re^2: Citrus Perl: problems trying to load additional modulesby HelenCr (Monk)

stefbv, syphilis, Anne and AM: Thank you for you time and interest. Your posts helped a lot.
Here is how I got it solved: although CPANPLUS version was not that far back-dated, I decided to try to update it to the latest (0.9136). It's not simple to update it, so I used this incantation:
cpan -fi BINGOS/CPANPLUS-0.9136.tar.gz
as Khen1950fx suggested here: perlmonks.org/?node_id=1031040.
Turned out that wasn't such a good decision, since it got stuck for more than an hour in trying to install DateTime::TimeZone.
I Googled a bit and realized it got into a "required dependency loop". I killed the perl.exe process (had to, since it ignored Ctrl-C), and installed the required dependencies manually.
So all looks fine right now.
Many thanks to all who chipped-in for help - Helen
