[Bioperl-l] Bioperl installation under Windows

I have been trying to install Bioperl 1.4 on a Windows XP system, but I
didn't get too far; my perl installation was made using ActiveState
5.8.8build 816. I then tried the ppm method of searching for bioperl
in the
repositories and installing the core package 1.4. It says that the
installation was made successfully, but the /Bio folder doesn't show up in
/lib, and it's like nothing new was installed at all. I was wondering if
using that version of ActiveState could be causing it, but the uninstall
option for it isn't showing in Add/Remove, and I'm afraid just deleting the
folders and installing version 5.6 of AS could somehow damage and make
things worse. Or should I just forget about it and try using Cygwin?

Thank you,
