Instead of copying, install it with PPM. Download the ZIP from
Sourceforge for your build of Perl. I've run into the same thing when
just trying to copy the appropriate files to their locations. If you
use the one from Active state, it is only build .558. Sourceforge is
.607 I believe.
It looks like you are behind a Proxy. Did you read the Perl
distribution docs on how to set up PPM (your environment) for a proxy?

Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] Win32::GUI help-URGENT
I am computer engg student in Singapore and am currently developing a
perl application for which I need to develop a small and simple GUI. For
this I came across this Win32::GUI module and feel its very easy to use.
However I'm having trouble with it and was hoping someone could help me
since posts in forums etc havent been much help. I thought mailing here
directly would be the best thing to do. Firstly i downloaded the package
but when i say ppm install Win32-GUI i get an error as follows:
Error: No valid repositories; Error 500 Can't connect to
ppm.Activestate.com:80 (connect: Unknown error) at
D:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/Repository.pm line 84 Error: 500 Can't connect to
ppm-ia.Activestate.com:80 (connect: Unknown error) at
D:/Perl/site/lib/PPM/Repository.pm line 84=20
I feel either there is something wrong with my pre-instaled modules or
im doing something wrong, but have no idea what it is.
Also if i try to run a simple script to make a window with one button or
any other script that uses this module I get the following error:
Can't locate loadable object for module Win32::GUI in @INC (@INC
contains D:/Perl/lib D:/Perl/site/lib .) at GUI.pl line 1 Compilation
failed in require at GUI.pl line 1 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
GUI.pl line 1
Once again I think i'm not sure why this error is coming. I did copy the
GUI.pm file in all the directories specified. Please tell me what else I
should do. I am in a hurry and need to start developing soon which wont
take time once this problem is solved. I am hoping someone would reply
to be as soon as possible.
Any suggestions/help/advise to put me onto track would be much
appreciated! Thank you for your time. Hoping to hear from you soon
