It installed with no problem for me, on Windows 8.1.

I don't know what the error message means.

Does it successfully copy the files? If not, do you have write permission to your chosen directory?

If that doesn't help, you might try the static build instead of the dll.

My guess is that you do not have any of the NetPBM image formats and code installed on your Windows machine. But I am not a Windows user to know if it comes with Window or with Imagemagick or you have to install it separately.

I see you are installing PerlMagick. I don't use Perl so I don't know but I suppose you need to have Perl installed first. Is Perl installed? Is it a recent version?
