PPM re-installing previously uninstalled module

I am trying to reinstall a previously uninstalled package, in the Perl Package Manager GUI. Earlier I uninstalled Win32-SerialPort by accident. I am trying to reinstall it, but it doesn't come up in any search results, when viewing all packages. So I thought that uninstalling it might have left something behind, by viewing Installed packages. If it doesn't show up in the search results, how can I go about re-installing the package again? Attempting to install it on the command line fails as well, stating that it can't find it.

Platform - Windows XP
Perl version - 5.18.2

The module generally fails to build because the PPM build systems don't have a real serial port.

A complete reinstall of your Perl would get the original built-in module back.

Alternately, you could connect to the Bribes de Perl PPM repo.
