    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
