Corion and Marto:

When I download "Perl GUI Loft" from here:, (and then I unzip it), then a "PPM" directory is created, with two sub-directories: "AdHoc" and "Loft".

Then the instructions here: say that I have to run the install.bat batch files in both directories. Those batch files are very simple, for example:

echo Installing Win32::GUI::Loft call ppm install Win32-GUI-Loft.ppd

But when I run it, I get:

'ppm' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Corion: when I go:

cpan Win32::GUI::AdHoc

I get:

Warning: Cannot install Win32::GUI::AdHoc, don't know what it is.

How to make cpan recognize the GUI Loft modules?

By the way, each one of the two directories has the binary in a *PPM.tar.gz module - how should I install them?

many TIA - Helen
