Please fix the pl2bat on windows x64 because it causes build fails.

the following is one example:

http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x64/5.20/2000/L/LZ/LZH/Net-Shadowsoc...

or you can search for "pl2bat.bat :WinNT was unexpected at this time. dmake: Error code 255" and find out a dozen others.

I'm not sure if pl2bat.bat is the problem at this point in time because I'm trying to install Net-Shadowsocks from CPAN on 5.22.3 and 5.24.1 (both Win64) and get errors when installing.

What is strange is your package on 5.24 Win-32 bit compiles on PPM with no errors (0.9.2.3):
http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86-64int/5.24/2400/L/LZ/LZH/Net-Sha...

However, it fails again with 0.9.2.7.

Were you able to get this to install on Win 64 via cpan?

This bug affects a number of my packages.

E.g. http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x64/5.24/2400/J/JV/JV/App-Music-Chor...

Is there anything I can do to speed up fixing this?
