[texhax] Problems with installation

I have an old computer (vintage 2004) running Win-XP,  It has Miktex 2.7 
on it and, in order to free up disk space, I decided to install the latest 
version I have on its second disk drive (and then uninstall the 2.7).  It 
turns out that the te live 2013 DVD is unreadable because the drive 
reads only CDs.  So I decided to use the Tug installation.  I went to Tug, 
downloaded install-tl.zip, unzipped it and then ran install-tl-windows as 
prescribed by tug.  Here are the error messages I got:

C:\util;C:\program files\keditw;C:\Program Files\SSH Communications 
Security\SSH S
ecure Shell
Can't locate warnings/register.pm in @INC (you may need to install the 
egister module) (@INC contains: E:/downloads/tlpkg 
E:\downloads\tlpkg\tlperl\lib .
) at vars.pm line 7.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at vars.pm line 7.

Press any key when ready...

Any idea what went wrong?
