My error was in the way I was trying to install. When I used the ActiveState installer, PPM, everything went well.
As for WATCOM, you are correct, WW, that it has been around for a while. I first used it shortly after the CP/M days. The original creator was bought out, maybe as an attempt to kill it, but it has since become available as a public domain system. The support community is a bit on the "serious hacker" side. As far as I know, there are no more "user oriented" forums. But it does work up to x86 and NT models. To my knowledge, there is no support for 64-bit. But HEY, I'm really a Perl fan. So enough about C.
