If ActiveState doesn't offer it, maybe you need to contact their (paid) support for old versions of Perl?

There is a lock icon next to 5.8 at http://code.activestate.com/ppm/Excel-Writer-XLSX/, and if you click it, it shows there is a really old version available (if you have username/password) for 5.8 ... makes sense, really old perl is really old :)

An alternative could be to just use a more recent version of Perl for your tool.

or *cough*cough* just use cpanp/cpanm to install the latest Excel::Writer::XLSX from cpan, its pure perl after all :)

    I guess cpanp needs a newer perl to work? as it is not recognized on Windows

      Why guess? Click the link and find out ... Does it matter? You can use cpan also... or download the tarball yourself and do the Makefile.PL dance yourself

        I did click cpanp is not recognized. I'd be delighted if that worked, then activestate would no longer be needed
