Install Strawberry Perl 126.96.36.199 from http://strawberryperl.com.
Open a command prompt and past the following into it to install the additional perl modules log2timeline needs:
cpan DateTime Date::Manip XML::LibXML Carp::Assert Digest::CRC Data::Hexify Image::ExifTool File::Mork DateTime::Format::Strptime Parse::Win32Registry HTML::Scrubber Mac::PropertyList XML::Entities
**Note, run this command a few times to make sure that everything installed correctly, if it did you should see the following results.

Download log2timeline_0.65 from http://code.google.com/p/log2timeline/ and extract it.
Once its extracted, cd into the log2timeline_0.65 directory that was just created and delete the file lib/Log2t/input/pcap.pm
Create a file named install.bat in the log2timeline_0.65 directory and put the following commands in it:
xcopy /S lib\Parse\* c:\strawberry\perl\lib\Parse\
xCopy /s lib\Log2t\* c:\strawberry\perl\lib\Log2t\
Copy lib\Log2Timeline.pm c:\strawberry\perl\lib\Log2Timeline.pm
Copy log2timeline c:\strawberry\perl\site\bin\log2timeline.pl
Copy l2t_process_old c:\strawberry\perl\site\bin\l2t_process.pl
Copy timescanner c:\strawberry\perl\site\bin\timescanner.pl
Run the install.bat you just created from inside your log2timeline_065 directory.
Once its finished you should have a working copy of log2timeline on your Windows system.
You can now just run "log2timeline.pl" from a command prompt and feed it some date, for instance Evidence files collected from TriageIR.
