on windows 32 bit vista system with active perl 5.14:
As soon as I open the ppm from GUI, I am getting the message as

Syncing site PPM database with .packlists ... done
Synchronizing Database ...
Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist ... not found
Synchronizing Database done
Synchronizing Database ... done
Synchronizing Database ... done

when I try to install any package using ppm, getting with this error
C:\perl>ppm install DateTime
Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...not found
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides DateTime

I have followed all the procedures provided in the "A Guide to Installing Modules" along with enabling http_proxy due to firewall etc.
But still no luck, can anyone help me on this?
