Step 2 really suggests that this is a problem local to your computer. 
In recent weeks, there have been a few reports of anti-virus software 
blocking some component of perl or Demeter.

In the time period between steps 1 and 2, was AV updated on this 
computer?  Could you disable AV (as a test of course)?  Or configure AV 
to explicitly allow Demeter to run?
