Thanks for the clarification on this issue about not needing the Tie::Watch 
module.  Earlier I  wrote an email saying that my admin interface was 
telling me that I still needed several modules installed even though I have 
went through the process and installed the modules on my machine.  At the 
time I asked if there was anything I needed to do to "initiate" or force 
Interchange to "see" the modules.

With this question now I am wondering if it may be possible that I do not 
need these modules.  Is that the case?  If it is not the case and I do need 
the modules, why is Interchange not "seeing" that they are installed.  I 
understand that this may in fact be a Perl problem or other type of system 
problem and not an Interchange problem, but everything "seems" fine on the 
Perl side.  Have you ever heard of this before?  Any ideas?
