Can't locate object method "new" via package "LWP::Protocol::https::Socket"
If you are running ActiveState's ActivePerl, then the University of Winnipeg has PPMs available for download here. (See this posting for details). You will also need a copy of libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll, which can be downloaded from the scripts subdirectory. The dlls can be placed in C:\Perl\bin.
