Ok Hina,
I'm not seeing any issues with the presence or availability of 
http://bioperl.org/DIST
from my machine. Can you access that url in a browser? If not, the king of the 
King's
Buildings may not be allowing access. Also, can you do the following:

C:> ppm-shell
ppm> repo list

Note the number of the repo that corresponds to bioperl (if any) and do

ppm> repo describe n

where 'n' is that number, and send the output along.

cheers, MAJ

Hi Mark

warm regards

I was following that protocol only , but the problem is when I tried
to do it from PPM, and when I reach at the stem install BioPerl, it is
showing error "Ppm
install failed: 404 not found" in the end. and when I tried it by CPAN
/manual installation, I couldn't download nmake,its showing that "the
version of
this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are
running. Check your computer system information to see whether you
need 32 bit or 64 bit of this program and than contact the software
publisher."


What should I do? Please help.

Regards

Hina
