Problems with SWISH-Stemmer on Windows

I am having trouble gettin SWISH-Stemmer installed on my Windows machine.

I have tried using PPM and get the following error:

ppm> install SWISH
====================
Install 'SWISH' version 0.07 in ActivePerl 5.6.1.633.
====================
Downloaded 8255 bytes.
Extracting 4/4: blib/arch/auto/SWISH/.exists

Successfully installed SWISH version 0.07 in ActivePerl 5.6.1.633.
ppm> install SWISH-Stemmer
Error: no suitable installation target found for package SWISH-Stemmer.
ppm>


I have also tried making the SWISH-Stemmer distribution from scratch, but
then get the following error:

Obviously, I'm using cygwin on my windows box.  Does anybody have any other
advice?  

Thanks
