No sorry, I cannot explain this.  It works here with my XP/SP2 so it is 
not a generic problem.  I'm seeing that perl writes a file to /tmp
instead this error.
Maybe perl doesn't like your TMP drive:
 > TEMP = `C:\DOCUME~1\TOMAXE~1\LOKALA~1\Temp'
 > TMP = `C:\DOCUME~1\TOMAXE~1\LOKALA~1\Temp'

Create /tmp and set TMP & TEMP to /tmp.
