How can I download/install a version of Win32::DriveInfo for Windows 7?

I dont know much about PPM and how it works; It doesn't seem to have DriveInfo 'out of the box'

I typed it in, but it ain't there, not a dicky bird..

My Laptop is 64 bit, does this actually make a difference?

dicky bird? .. doesn't matter if you are using Windows 7 - 64 bit. I've been using Windows 7 - 64 bit for over a year with Komodo, ActivePerl (always latest release), and the Perl Dev Kit). One caveat, even though I'm using the 64-bit version of the OS, I'm using the X86 version of ActivePerl and the Perl Dev Kit. Not sure... but that might limit what you see if you have already tried to search for it.

Here's a screenshot from my workstation. I typed in 'win32-driveinfo', hit search... then installed it.

Is there any other module I can use ?
I always used "Win32::DriveInfo::DrivesInUse" and "Win32::DriveInfo::VolumeInfo".

Recently changed to Windows7 and installed 64bit Perl and my script doesn't work anymore.

Do I need to install 32bit perl now ?
