Its been many months (>1 year++) since I tried to install a package with PPM. I do have a full business license. But I was not able to install this package.

See: ActiveState PPM Availability and the 401 error
Evidently things have changed in respect to repository access over the years and licensing issues matter a lot more now. However, I think you can still do it albeit with more hassle. See the link above - there is a manual download process described. This 401 error has to do with the PPM repository access, not an issue with your system or its directories.

Update: It appears to me that Active State is still "free", but ppm will only work with the current or their edition before that of Perl. Sounds to me like kind of a "forced upgrade". I have no idea why Active State did this.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
