in thread Module Installation Trouble

Thank you very much, Roger. I didn't know about this command before. However, being as illiterate as I am with Windows(I had to make a reluctant switch from an Apple), I can't find out why it gives me this:

C:\>ppm install data-serializer
Installing package 'data-serializer'...
Error installing package 'data-serializer': Could not locate a PPD file for pack age data-serializer


I tried specifying the full filepath to Data-Serialzer-0.20.tar.gz, and tried just Data-Serializer-0.20 and I get the same thing.

Please forgive my stupidity.

    Try again with case sensitive module name:
    ppm install Data-Serializer

    If this still doesn't work, it means you are behind a firewall and need to go through a proxy and need to setup the proxy environment variables.

    So one step at a time, try again with the command above.
