in reply to Installing modules

Wow thank you all for the useful responses! I feel a lot less confused now, understanding non-compiled modules and CPAN (thanks zork42), adding the compiler (thanks dasgar), and upgrading my Perl install to fix the authentication problem (thanks tobyink). And the rest of you, thanks.

Using ActiveState for Win XP btw.

So I've gotten a lot farther, was able to add the compiler and get past the authentication problem. Still seeing some problems I don't understand. Sorry for the long code post but here's a snippet of my output.

I did try the "reports" but wasn't able to get it. I did see a page somewhere with a lot of bad news about the JDBC module, so maybe it's just not well defined for Windows.

Should I use "force"? (how?)
