After a quick look, this is the problem:
In the sub CreateProgressWin you create the window and then call
Win32::GUI::Dialog(); It kind of looks like it's a remnant from Perl
The call to Dialog() will make the script enter the main event loop.
Anything from there (like your FTP stuff) has to be triggered by an event
(e.g. a button click, a window being resized, or a timer) until the event
loop is terminated (by returning -1 in an event handler).
The thing is, you don't have to call Win32::GUI::Dialog() for the window to
function, you can do that manually by calling Win32::GUI::DoEvents() as
often as possible. And you already do that in the RecieveTransfer loop, so
if you just remove the call to Dialog() it will work fine.
The downside: the GUI response will be sluggish when you do it like this,
but the alternative is to do your application stuff in another process or
thread, and that is a lot more work. I'd love to see a stable framework for
doing that though.

You use \ instead of \\ as directory separator in a few places. Most of the
time / works very well on the Windows platform.
And, you might want to change the password on whichever server that is ;)
