Looks like I am going to attempt switch to Strawberry Perl

I think that's a step in a better direction.
However, it's not a panacea, and you might still face some challenges in getting Image::Magick installed.
Strawberry Perl does not provide the prerequisite C libraries for Image::Magick, so you'll still need to source those and then make them accessible to the Image::Magick build process if you want to build Image::Magick yourself.

Of course, as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, Strawberry Perl does ship with a PPM utility, so you could still "ppm install" Image::Magick from the repo if need be (and thereby avoid the need to track down that "prerequisite C library").

    Waah waah waah :D
    $ ppm install Gtk3 Gtk3 Installing package 'Gtk3'... Error installing package 'Gtk3': Error reading http://www.sisyphusion. +tk/ppm/x86/Gtk3-516.tar.gz Installing package 'Gtk3'... Error installing package 'Gtk3': Could not locate a PPD file for packa +ge Gtk3

    This went ok but it made no improvements to install Gtk3 timing out slowly at different points

    ppm install Crypt-SSLeay Net-SSLeay Mozilla::CA IO::Socket::SSL
      $ ppm install Gtk3 Gtk3

      Does it make any difference if you instead run ppm install Gtk3
      Are you running this in a bash shell ? I've never used ppm in anything other than the cmd.exe shell, but I'm not sure, off the top of my head, whether that should matter.
      Also, what does perl -V output ?

      I downloaded and it unpacked fine for me.
      Also grabbed which seems ok, too.

        ppm install Gtk3 makes no difference, only the error message is usually about Gtk3-516.tar.gz, after really really long delay

        I'm using cmd.exe

        oh, PPM.log sometimes complains
