Where can I get nmake to install perl modules??  The perl documentation lists the microsoft site.  But the link is bad. And I can't find it by searching.
Are there any alternatives?
The module in question just needs to be installed not compliled(I think).  It is the win32::api module.  
Is there a way to install it by hand? (moving files into the right directory)  Or is it more complicated than that.

Thanks for your help.

If you use ActivePerl (http://www.activestate.com/), use PPM (perl package manager):
ppm install Win32-API
from command prompt.
