Compiling perl on Windows requires jumping through additional hoops compared to *nix systems and ActiveState hasn't worked out those hoops yet with 5.28 which is why their current downloadable (compiled) version is 5.26.

I haven't compiled perl on Windows, so I can't give you the proper solution to do that compilation.
My suggestion is to install Strawberry perl instead of ActivePerl. I switched to strawberry perl a long time ago because of the problems installing modules with ActiveState. Granted, they have gotten better, but they are still far behind strawberry perl.
