Module Installation Question

The error message you are getting is telling you that the Microsoft C
Compiler (cl) is either not installed or the path to it isn't set  in your
PATH environment variable.  You can check the environment by typing 'set'
at the DOS prompt.  Do you have a C compiler on your computer for windows?

The module you are trying to install is basically a Perl wrapper for a C
library.  So in order to get it to work you must be able to compile the C
code that xsubpp is going to create from the .xs file.

I hope that helps a little.
