Why can't I install Win32::Word::Writer.PM? Not in PPM list either. It lives in CPAN.

I have perl ver 5.14 and latest PDK.

is pretty typical.

Microsoft Office needs to be installed on the build system for the needed libraries to be available. That's a licensed third-party library, so we do not install them.

See the module docs at http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/JOHANL/Win32-Word-Writer-0.03/README

ActivePerl will support the use of the cpan script tool as described above.
