This didn't work for me - I had error message "Panic: Can't find bfs
section" whenever I called ppm on commandline.
Then I was a litte bit confused and thought it was the fact which was
mentioned during installation of ActivePerl-5.8 about ppm and licensing...

.. but it is not right. Only profile functionality requires license; ppm
works without it.

After cleaning installation of ActivePerls ppm works now as easy as it was
an cpan installation under linux. I wasted no time and installed immediately
ppm> install Spreadsheet-ParseExcel
After reindexing I got all Microsoft Excel documents into it. The original
Open Office Org Table Document was not indexed, but it wasn't promised, or
should it be?
