thanx all for the help.
I have edited "get_iplayer.pl" in c:\Program Files\get_iplayer\ by
Notepad++ and removed //line 28 ($0 = 'get_iplayer';)
//saved the file and run:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Program Files\get_iplayer>get_iplayer --update
get_iplayer v2.79, Copyright (C) 2008-2010 Phil Lewis
