Just call nmake instead of make when you want to do your build, such as

 perl Makefile.PL
 nmake
 nmake test
 nmake install

missing right curly or square bracket at -e line 1, at end of line
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.

Stop.

Just out interest ... are you trying to install a package that is not available through ActiveState's Perl Package Manager (PPM) app?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I believe that the PPM utility can be run on the command line and can be used to install from files without using the internet (I think).  By the documentation it uses ppd or ppmx file to describe the install to the PPM utility.

This link contains a list of sites to get PPD (and the tarball) for packages.

I have never done it this way myself ... but I mention in case it may be useful to you.
