I don't know why installed in the wrong location, actually I am almost certain it did not. The module you are installing is not for a start. Did you do the nmake install? When I do it this is what it says.....

[snip, following the tests we do.....] C:\enum-1.016>nmake install Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 1.50 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp 1988-94. All rights reserved. Skipping D:\Perl\site\lib\ (unchanged) Writing D:\Perl\site\lib\auto\enum\.packlist Appending installation info to D:\Perl\lib/perllocal.pod C:\enum-1.016>

So you can see where it goes. You can just cut and paste the module to \perl\site\lib\ and it will work but I am certain you forgot the install step as on my system there is as noted and in Win32\OLE\ :-)

Don't know why you don't have Win32::API if you have ActiveState Perl (you did say you were using ppm). cl is the M$ C compiler and you do need it to compile source that contains C. I have a tutorial on setting that up as well but you need access to MSVCC. However Win32::API is available as a ppm so all you need to do is:

C:\>ppm install Win32::API Installing package 'Win32-API'... Downloading +-multi-thread/Win32-API-0.41.tar.gz ...
