in thread PPM stopped working after trying to install XML::LibXML [SOLVED]

Do the directories C:\data\tmp, for the temp files, and C:\data\Perl\etc, for ppm-site-dirty, exist?

Is it just installation of this particular package that's a problem, or is there now a problem with any package, including one from ActiveState's repository?

    C:\data\tmp and C:\data\Perl\etc both exist.

    At first I thought it made no difference which package I try to install. The ones I tried and used Archive::Tar end with a similar error, but the ones which use Archive::Zip work!

    So there must be something wrong with the use of Archive::Tar as used by ActivePerl::PPM::Client. (See update 2 above)
