PPMX download requires a Business Version authentication of some sort..?

I need Spreadsheet::Read / WriteExcel. Was able to PPM install these onto my laptop. However, my current contract finds me behind the Great Wall. Thought I might try PPMX approach but I'm asked for a Business Version login when trying to download the PPMX file for Spreadsheet:: modules. I don't believe I have one of those..

Just wondering what the logic is.. available thru PPM but not the PPMX approach..

Any work-arounds ?

Thanks much in advance..

There an FAQ:

So, yes you can use the PPM client for free, but if you don't have internet, the offline process requires a paid license.
