Where did you get that instruction from?

Below is the text from the http://www.wtcs.org/snmp4tpc/ site...

Integrating RRDTool with MRTG
 First of all, you must have a working MRTG configuration.   If not, don't
even attempt to make this work.  Having said that, let's continue...

MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING PERL 5.6!  You can get it from the ActiveState Web
Site (www.activestate.com).  Install it, and proceed to the next step.

Download and install RRDTool.  You can get it at the RRDTool Web Site

Once RRDTool has been installed, open an OS prompt and change directory to
the X:\rrdtool\perl-shared directory.  Then run "ppm install rrds.ppd" (omit
the " ").  A successful install will generate several lines of informational

Modify your MRTG config file(s) to include the following text (substitute
path with an appropriate path for your environment).  I put it just
underneath the WorkDir and IconDir option settings.

# START RDTOOL Add-ons -------------------------------------
# Modify Logfiles (*.log) to RRD format (*.rrd)
LogFormat: rrdtool
# RRD Executable (rrdtool.exe) location
PathAdd: d:/rrdtool/perl-shared/t
# RRD Perl module (RRDs.pm) location
LibAdd: d:/rrdtool/perl-shared
# STOP RDTOOL Add-ons -------------------------------------
