I had a similar experience while trying to install Dancer on Strawberry Perl 5.12.3 under Windows 7. tmpdir() simply returns \ which is not writable. I fixed this by adding 'C:\windows\temp' to the searched lists. This path appears to be available on all recent versions of Windows - since XP anyway. Can this change be incorporated into the package upstream? In complete agreement with mmusgrove. Considering the number of other modules that indirectly depend on this, such changes in the Windows approach to temporary folders shouldn't cause File::Spec::Win32 irreparable damage.
