Are you using ActivePerl on a Windows machine?

If you are, I had exactly the same problem, I couldn't get it installed for love nor money. I ended up getting Perl 5.6.1 and it installed without issue first time.

If it aint broke then don't try to fix it

Perl 5.6.0 is six years old now. There's really no reason to be using a version that it so old. If you upgrade to Perl 5.8.8 then you'll almost certainly find that the support you get is much better.
