    Works ok for me on ActivePerl-5.8.9 (build 825):
    C:\>ppm install File-Copy-Recursive Downloading File-Copy-Recursive-0.38...done Unpacking File-Copy-Recursive-0.38...done Generating HTML for File-Copy-Recursive-0.38...done Updating files in site area...done 2 files installed
    Can you show us the output of ppm repo describe 1
    That would enable us to find the File-Copy-Recursive.tar.gz that you can't extract ... and we could then check to see that file is ok.

      also output of ppm log would help
        Output from ppm repo describe 1 is below.

        Name: ActiveState Package Repository
        Enabled: yes

[Corion]: Whee! Germanys Grand Central Airport (for Berlin, re-scheduled for the thrid or fourth time, to open now in 2018) has just fired their technical lead
[ambrus]: Corion: Is their budget estimate four times the initial estimate yet? Was the construction late by six months already three months after they started?
[marto]: I'll believe it when I see it. That's been due for many years now :P
[marto]: oddly the last time I was there I saw a zeppelin in flight for the first time
[Corion]: ambrus: I don't know how far the budget estimate has been overrun yet
[Corion]: marto: Heh ;) No, you were likely at Tegel or Schönefeld, the new one ("BER") will be somewhat outside of Berlin ;)
