[RADIATOR] newbie questions and 64 bit windows install

Hello All,

Trying to upgrade an inherited install to from 3.something to 4.9 on new

Trying to follow the basic install instructions including the Win32-Lsa
module so this can point at an AD.

Installing to a W2K8R2 (64 bit) server and installed ActiveState's Perl64

Can't get the LSA installed using the line from the instructions:

"ppm install http://www.open.com.au/radiator/free-downloads/Win32-Lsa.ppd"

I get an error, "ppm install failed: The PPD does not provide code to
install for this platform."

If I look in the ppd file, sure enough, I see case statements for versions
up to 5.12 only.

Am I better off installing a 32bit and/or earlier version of ActivePerl?
Does a 64 bit install buy me any benefits that are worth any extra work of
making it fly?
