Thnaks hippo and marto. I realized I had a window of opoortunity to look at Strawberry Perl. So I uninstalled ActivePerl and installed Starwberry Perl. I now have GD module installed.
I was worried that many of the modules I had previously installed may not re-install. Well low and behold probably half of the modules I had to install in ActivePerl are in the initial install with Strawberry.
So I now have Strawbery Perl up and running and everything seems to be working with my existing perl scripts.
Thanks again for the help. I appreciate it. Stay safe.
