Trouble installing module (Device::Modem) for ActiveState Perl on Windows.

I'm pretty new to Perl, but loving it for the most part.  Right now, however, I'm beating my head against the wall trying to install a module (Device::Modem) to work on my version of ActiveState Perl in Windows.   I installed Win32::SerialPort without worries, and I ran a test file to ensure I could connect to a Wavecom GSM modem.  All is good on that front.  

When I try to Makefile.pl for Device::Modem, however, I get the error message that:
"Warning:  the following files are missing in your kit: Modem.pm, Please inform the author.  Could not open 'Modem.pm' : No such file or directory at C:/Perl/lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm"

Now, maybe this won't work on Windows since it references a MM_Unix.pm file, but at the same time the only dependency of the module is Win32::SerialPort which I installed without worry.  I cannot find a modem.pm file anywhere in the directory structure of the distribution I downloaded from CPAN.

Anyway, any help much appreciated.  Alternatively any assistance on how to send and receive AT Commands from a modem (COM port) on a Windows box with Perl would be muy helpful.  Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi !

I a find the Modem.pm in the root of the folder Device-Modem module but the module didn't want install correctly.

Copy the Modem.pm in C:\Perl\site\lib\Device.
