I installed ActivePerl-

When I try to ppm the Excel_Writer I get the following:
C:\Perl64\lib>ppm install Excel-Writer-XLSX
Downloading ActiveState Package Repository dbimage...failed 500 Can't connect to
Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...failed 500 Can't connect t
o ppm4.activestate.com:80
Syncing site PPM database with .packlists...done
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides Excel-Writer-XLSX

How can I get the connection to activestate.com to work? Is there another manual way to copy and install the needed files?

The system is locked down from a IE 11 - enhanced security configuration is enabled. I went into the trusted sites and added http://*.activestate.com and http://ppm4.activestate.com but it still fails. Is there any else I should try?

I am just an end user and could use your help. Thanks in advance.

Tip: Examine the Status line at the bottom the PPM GUI. If the number of available packages is the same as the number of installed packages, you don't have a connection to the PPM servers.
