installation question

I'm sure this is very basic, so basic I can't find the answer anywhere. I lost my hard drive and had to reinstall Active Perl, and 5.10.0 successfully installed, but many basic modules are missing. In particular I have an old program that uses very very basic modules win32::GUI, File::Basename, and Cwd, and I can't even find these. Please help!

Lots of those basic modules which seem to be missing are probably shipped as part of the ActivePerl core. File:Basename and Cwd are both built-ins with ActivePerl 5.10.0.

However, Win32::GUI is not built-in, and it is not available from PPM. It can be built from CPAN sources.
