Subject: share\stuff..\Hello.txt': No such file or directory
On Windows when extracting the tar, "stuff.." gets named "stuff" on the disk. This happened in the CPAN tool chain, as well as when using 7-Zip. Using 7-Zip, I can see that the directory is indeed named "share.." in the archive. I believe this is because (at least on NTFS) you cannot name folder names that end with a dot.
Fixed in 0.9961
I guess I didn't realize since I was manually unarchived because of the issue, but you may want to rename the directory, because (at least in CPAN.pm) the archive extraction fails because of checks that CPAN::Tarzip is making:

I'm not really sure what would work best.
Hello, It is now working for me, thank you! The pass report should eventually be at http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/031a993b-6cd5-1014-86ce-28d7c519f259
