Plugin installation failed due to missing cpan dependencies (windows)

Hello,

I want to install plugins. If open "extensions" and use Find More Extensions I always get "Error accessing Foswiki.org: Can't connect to foswiki.org:80 (connect: timeout)". I don´t know why.

I tried to install it manually, but it seems not to work or I don´t realy know how it work.

Foswiki is installed on a windows computer (partition d:). I unpack the .zip archive to D:\Foswiki\Foswiki\. Then I use the console type "cd D:\Foswiki\Foswiki" and try to execute the installer script?

________________________________________________________________

D:\Foswiki\Foswiki>perl ActionTrackerPlugin _installer

### ActionTrackerPlugin Installer ###

This installer must be run from the root directory of your Foswiki
installation.
* The script will not do anything without asking you for
confirmation first (unless you used -a).
* You can abort the script at any point and re-run it later
* If you answer 'no' to any questions you can always re-run
the script again later

Checking dependency on Time::ParseDate....
*** ActionTrackerPlugin depends on cpan package Time::ParseDate >=2003.0211
which is described as "Required. Available from the CPAN:Time::ParseDate archive
."
But when I tried to find it I got this error:

Can't locate Time/ParseDate.pm

This module is available from the CPAN archive (http://www.cpan.org). You
can download and install it from here. The module will be installed
to wherever you configured CPAN to install to.

Would you like me to try to download and install the latest version of Time::Par
seDate from cpan.org? [y/n]

If I type "yes" he´s still fetching with LWP - but it doesn´t work.

Did you configured your local cpan tool already? Before you can use it for the first time, you need to run through some basic configuration.

Do you have LWP installed on your system? What are the exact error messages after he´s still fetching with LWP - but it doesn´t work.?

Do you use a dedicated perl distributiuon (activeperl, strawberry,...)?
