C:\Documents and Settings\ccadm>ppm install Crypt::SSLeay
Error: No valid repositories: Error: 404 Not Found at C:/Program
Files/Perl/site/lib/PPM/Repository.pm line 84

It's because the space in the directory - Program Files.

How to fix this?

Installing to Programs files is a mitigation measure for CVE-2012-5377, but it comes with an associated loss of functionality on Windows, and is known to break many existing Perl scripts.

@grahams

Is there any other way to fix this than install Perl under C:\Perl and use the Powershell script to transfer permissions
