The current release uses http://biolpc22.york.ac.uk\pub\2.6.3\wxWidgets-2.6.3.tar.gz which no longer exists. I'd expect this problem is going to occur every time there's a release. It might be a good idea to copy the source distributions and put them somewhere that we control. I'd be happy to volunteer win32.perl.org if needed for the purpose.

Hi, I have no idea what the problem is, but is definitely not that URL's unreliability: the file is there. The problem might come from the forward slashes in the path (where do they come from?). Also, please note that the URL in the config if a FTP url. How did you get that HTTP URL? Regards Mattia
