Help with online quotes downloading.

Hi, I am trying to setup gnucash online price updating.

 From the help it indicates that perl needs to be installed and certain 
are required.

I have perl installed as part of cygwin, and the required modules are 
also installed.
The cygwin perl executable is in the path, and from a dos window I can 
run gnc-fq-dump
and get no errors, but when I run gnucash, it flashes a perl window when 
which doesn't stay open long enough for me to see what it says, but in 
the security editor
it still says that Finance::Quote is not properly installed.

Is there something I can do besides adding the cygwin/bin to the path in 
to point gnucash to cygwin's perl installation?  Or do I have to install 
also in addition to the cygwin perl I already have installed?
