I am trying to use ppm install PDF::Reuse::Barcode and it gives me an error:
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides PDF::Reuse::Barcode

I am Win7 x 64 - hence did not got the route of nmake.

ppm has always been my choice of installing Perl modules.

Can I use ppm to install it by downloading/unzipping the module on my
local server - any instructions?

Any help is greatly appreciated in installing this module,

There is an FAQ for which compiler/make suite to use with 64-bit Windows:
