If you install perl 5.10 (activeperl) there should be a PPM repository for your 64 bit operating system. You need to uninstall your current perl install and reinstall the new one of you wanted to try it. Or you can install modules using CPAN on Windows with activeperl. Read the activeperl PPM documentation, there should be a section that explains how to do it using CPAN and nmake.
