    Hi, thanks -- I tried installing MinGW and get this:

    C:\Perl64\site\lib\Tk>ppm install MinGW
    Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done
    Updating ActiveState Package Repository database...done
    ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides MinGW
    

    And the cpan repository appears empty:

    C:\working\ic-metrics\ICCrawler>ppm rep
    ┌────┬───────┬────────────────────────────────┐
    │ id │ pkgs  │ name                           │
    ├────┼───────┼────────────────────────────────┤
    │  1 │ 16711 │ ActiveState Package Repository │
    │  2 │     0 │ cpan                           │
    │  3 │   n/a │ bribes                         │
    │  4 │    13 │ wxperl                         │
    └────┴───────┴────────────────────────────────┘
     (3 enabled repositories)
    

    I appreciate your help -- sorry if I'm running around in circles!

      Then try the other thing, the one not involving mingw, the one not involving 32-bit perl
