mod_perl-2.0.ppd installation failed

When I try to install a mod_perl-2.0.ppd with command line:

ppm install

I am getting this error:

ppm install failed: 500 Can't connect to (nodename nor servername provided, or not know)

Active perl version is 5.24.3. URL is unreachable in browser, so this repository no longer exists.

Can anyone help me fix this or to find appropriate repository ?

5.24.3 Build 2404 installer stalls at end

I can't get the current build to complete installation on WS 2012 R2. It seems to stall at the very end with 'Status: Extracting files from archive.' I've given it 15 or 20 minutes to complete from this point with no success.

First time it just hung and cancelling had no effect. I had to kill the process.

Second try it stalled and I was able to cancel. It rolled back successfully.

Third try, same result.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

ActivePerl License Clarification


Our Engineering team want to use a perl script on our pre-production environment (Windows Server) that searches and replaces some values. This perl script is not included in the final product or distributed with any software or accessed by any 3rd party. Are we able to use the community edition, or does this require the purchase of a Business Edition license?
