I have to ask: Which version of Strawberry Perl do you have? The newest one (5.30.0.1) is setting the CPAN::Config file within itself to use gmake - and already HAS the version of the CPAN module you're trying to upgrade to, anyway. However, if you have an older CPAN::Config file in your own user settings, it might override it, which is why it is telling you what to do - delete the older file. Follow its directions, try to install a different module, and see if the problem persists.

I also see that you have two perl installations. It's easier on Unix boxes to do this, but is hard to support on Windows. Please run these two commands: C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe -V C:\strawberry\bin\perl.exe -V and put the output here. You may end up wanting to uninstall one, so that they do not conflict with one another.
