    It's much easier to use ppm to install the packages directly. You can do this by specifying a location with the install command. If you connect to the internet via a proxy server, then you should first set the HTTP_proxy environment variable. Start a shell (cmd.exe) and type

    set HTTP_proxy=http://yourproxy.fqdn:port

    Then, run the command below from the same window (cmd.exe). If the first succeeds, then there is no need to run the second.

    ppm install --location= XML-LibXML ppm verify --upgrade --location= XML- +LibXML
    Now let's blow this thing and go home!

      My ppm doesn't connect to any external site. :'-(

      I am behind a proxy which is configured in a very funny way by our administrator. All my efforts to make a perl program talk to internet via that f&^%$(*& proxy have failed. I have raised this question in another thread.

      Even after settings the 3 required environment variables which the faq suggests ... my PPM goes no where.
