but could not find a generalised solution or an explanation of why this is happening
Really? Only a handfull of things could cause "Permission denied". You either don't have correct access permissions (unlikely), or the directory is use (open dirhandle), or it isn't empty. Example
C:\>perl -e"mkdir 1234; opendir IN, 1234;rmdir 1234 or die $!" Permission denied at -e line 1. C:\>echo >1234\test C:\>dir 1234 Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 44B0-3C2E Directory of C:\1234 04/22/2006 03:49 AM <DIR> . 04/22/2006 03:49 AM <DIR> .. 04/22/2006 03:49 AM 13 test 1 File(s) 13 bytes 2 Dir(s) 3,360,935,936 bytes free C:\>perl -e"opendir IN, 1234;rmdir 1234 or die $!" Permission denied at -e line 1. C:\>
Any help would be appreciated very much. Thank you.
Well it appears to be a bug in ppm (and maybe other things), so contact the maintainers of ppm, and maybe even search the mailing list and bug database.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
