Yes, I have gotten to the point where now it says that it cannot find packages for datemanip and it error's out at that point.  I have gone in and specifically installed, uninstalled, and rebooted for the datemanip package through the perl package manager.  I try the install online price grabber again and again and the same error comes up

* Check Perl
* Install DateManip
