installing validator on windows xp

I am having some problems installing the validator(v0.81) on windows XP.

I think I have every thing (including Apache) installed correctly except 
the required perl modules. I have used the 
http://www.myhpi.de/~dtibbe/download/ppm.zip and unzipped them to 
C:\www\ppm but for some reason when I open up the GUI and go through the 
"preferences dialogue (Edit -> Preferences ->  Repositories)..." steps 
it does not seem to install each of the pm modules. After several 
attempts I ended up browsing to the validator page and clicked "Check" 
but got the obvious errors. I found I was able to manually add some of 
the modules based on the error messages, but this only worked for some 
of them.

I wonder if there is some thing obvious that I have missed here or if 
there is perhaps another/better method of installing the modules?
Any one on the list here have any tips for this windows install?

Any help appreciated.
