I had the same situation as you; I run ActivePerl on my home windows XP, and
I had wanted to install Bioperl. You said that you downloaded it from CPAN?
If you just downloaded it directly, then the module might not be installed
properly in your Perl library files. I suggest you use PPM (Perl Package
Manager) which is automatically installed with the ActivePerl package. Just
run PPM and you should see a command prompt. To find out if bioperl was
properly installed, type "query bioperl", or if you want to see a list of
all the packages that have been installed, type "query *". If bioperl is not
on the list, then type "install bioperl"; this will tell PPM to
automatically download Bioperl from the ActiveState package repository,
unzip it, and download it. (You have to be connected to the internet for
this to work, of course). Easy!
