Template and AppConfig are not written about in Unix Docs (afaik). For Win32, Template and AppConfig are available via links at http://www.template-toolkit.org/download.html#win32. This should be added to the Win32 help docs
It should also be mentioned that there is an AppConfig in the 5.6Plus directory of ActiveState so that ppm might find that one instead and return an error like this: Error installing package 'AppConfig': Read a PPD for 'AppConfig', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x86-multi-thread) Therefore, you need to download both the tarball and ppd directly from http://openinteract.sourceforge.net/ppmpackages/ to some directory (we'll use C:\) then run ppm and do: install C:\AppConfig.ppd
Need this in the docs before the 2.16 release

I can't create a patch for this one based on the information given. I'm not familiar enough with Windows to know if those instructions make sense, and I'm pretty sure that they're not quite as clear as I'd like them to be. If you'd like to fire off another, slightly more explicit set of instructions, I'll get a patch in here so that we make sure it's in the guide for the release.
Here's a rewrite of step 3 of section 3.6.1 of the guide with the relevant information integrated: --- Use ppm from your perl\bin directory to install the following packs: DBI, DBD-Mysql, TimeDate, Chart, Date-Calc, Date-Manip, GD, AppConfig, and Template. You may need to extract them from .zip format using Winzip or other unzip program first. Most of these additional ppm modules can be downloaded from ActiveState, but AppConfig and Template should be obtained from OpenInteract using <a href="http://openinteract.sourceforge.net/">the instructions on the Template Toolkit web site</a>. Note You can find a list of modules at http://www.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/5xx-builds-only/ or http://www.activestate.com/PPMPackages/5.6plus The syntax for ppm is: C:> ppm <modulename> Example 3-3. Installing ActivePerl ppd Modules on Microsoft Windows C:>ppm DBD-Mysql Watch your capitalization! ActiveState's 5.6Plus directory also contains an AppConfig ppm, so you might see the following error when trying to install the version at OpenInteract: Error installing package 'AppConfig': Read a PPD for 'AppConfig', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x86-multi-thread) If so, download both <a href="http://openinteract.sourceforge.net/ppmpackages/AppConfig.tar.gz">the tarball</a> and <a href="http://openinteract.sourceforge.net/ppmpackages/AppConfig.ppd">the ppd</a> directly from OpenInteract, then run ppm from within the same directory to which you downloaded those files and install the package by referencing the ppd file explicitly via in the install command, f.e.: Example 3-4 Installing OpenInteract ppd Modules manually on Microsoft Windows install C:\AppConfig.ppd ---

we'll recompile and check in all the other formats last thing before release.
