Permission denied when running the script to install Finance::Quote under win XP

I run into a problem with the script that installs finance::quote under 
winsows XP. When i run the script, I always got a message about a 
permission denied in the instalaltion folder. I tried to use the 
"attrib" DOS command but it didn't work so, after a lot of researching, 
I found a solution with the following command (to run in a prompt):

cacls foldername /T /G "username":F

foldername is the folder where the Perl package has been downloaded (in 
my case "strawberry")
username is the name of the pc user
/T means recursively
/G assign acces rights (F in this case stands for full acces) to user 

I'm sending this just to have it available to all.
