Infobots and Windows 2000, with ActiveState Perl 5.6



A friend of mine is having some difficulties running an infobot (actually version: infobot-0.44.1 - we've tried with a later version, but the same applies) on Windows2000...
 
perl -v gives:
 
This is perl, v5.6.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)
 
So, a perl -V gives:

Characteristics of this binary (from libperl):

And of course, the error perl spouts is:
 
Missing braces on \N{} at ./src/Irc.pl line 131, near ">>> $

Compilation failed in require at infobot line 39.

Now, I've tried it on an earlier version of Activestate Perl, (This is perl, version 5.005_03 built for MSWin32-x86-object
to be exact), and all the same files work perfectly as far as I can tell.
 
Is there anyone else who's had this same problem or something along these lines?
 
Thanks in advance...
