      Hi Suresh,

      Thanks for the information.
      As per your instruction, i have tried by typing the ppm at command prompt, it's invoking the Perl Package Manager window and control is going to next line and blinking there in the command prompt.
      In the perl package manager window, it's displaying the status like "Synchronizing Database ... done"

      I didn't get any message like "PPM - Programmers package..." ?

      Do we need to change any settings in the ppm window ? Can you please help me on this ?

      Can you do this on your machine
      perl should be in path before you can type ppm here
