Spreadsheet-ParseXLSX not available in ActivePerl

I have just installed ActivePerl and I don't found Spreadsheet-Parse XLSX, which was available at some previoous versions.

I tried to install using cpanp and failed installing Crypt::Mode:CBC, wich isn't in ppm.

Is there a version of Spreadsheet-Parse XLSX available for ActivePerl 5.22.1 anywhere?

The problem on PPM is that IO::Stringy did not exist on the build systems when Spreadsheed::ParseXLSX was attempted, and would not install correctly during the prerequisite build attempt.

Try installing Spreadsheet::ParseExcel from PPM first.

Then consider attempting Crypt::Mode::CBD manually with cpanp before you attempt Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX. The cpanp script is not good and detecting prerequisites. You may find you need to manually install several other modules before all the requirements for Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX are met.
