DBD-mysql installation failure

I’m having a problem installing DBD-mysql so I can use PERL cgi scripts to communicate with the MySQL database I’ve just installed on a Microsoft Server 2003. I’ve had PERL installed and operational for several years in conjunction with one of my websites. Now I need a new and potentially large database, hence the MySQL. I’ve logged into the server as administrator and followed the instructions to use run, cmd and ppm to open the ppm. That happens just fine, but instead of getting an opportunity to type in “install DBD-mysql, I’m given a window where I can select available modules, etc. or those already installed. After highlighting DBD-mysql I click on file and then “Install The Selected Item” etc. Then I get a Error 401 – Authorization Required message. Why? What authorization is required since I am logged in as the administrator.

Any assistance that you can provide will be greatly appreciate.
