You have two choices :
1) use C:/Perl/site/bin/pp
eg : C:\Test\test>C:/Perl/site/bin/pp -o test.exe test.pl

2) Add C:/Perl/site/bin/pp in your PATH and then
C:\Test\test>pp -o test.exe test.pl

'pp' has been separated out into its own PAR::packer distribution, so
install that as well.

You have to install PAR::packer before.

You don't seem to have repository on your computer wich have this
module.

ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/PAR-Packer.ppd

Nevertheless I recommand you to install 3 Perl repositories on your
computer

ppm> rep add bribes http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm
ppm> rep add theoryx http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms
ppm> rep add Trouchelle http://trouchelle.com/ppm/

NB : If you speak french, you can read this good documentation about
ppm and modules installation

Thanks for your help, finally managed to install.

I created exe using command pp -o test.exe test.pl

but surprisingly when i run the exe it stops and in the command line
window it reads call perl. I am trying to make exe so that those who
do not have perl in their PC can use it as well.

I used to use ActiveState Perl, but I had my share of trouble
installing modules though the ppm interface (including PAR and
PAR::packer), so I switched to Strawberry Perl. I'm mostly pleased
with the switch.

Whereas with ActiveState Perl I installed new modules using ppm like
this:

ppm install PAR
ppm install PAR-Packer

with Strawberry Perl I install new modules like this:

cpan PAR
cpan PAR::packer

The Strawberry Perl approach is more Unix-like, and in my experience,
more successful, as it compiles its own version instead of relying on
pre-compiled binaries. (However, I'll tell you up front that modules
that depend on pre-installed libraries require more work than just one
"cpan" command.)

If you're interested in trying out Strawberry Perl for yourself, you
can download it from http://strawberryperl.com/ . (Be sure to
uninstall any previous versions of Perl before it, though.)

I hope this helps.
