in reply to Perl installation help

A few questions for clarification:

For what it's worth, I have ActivePerl 5.16 happily installed on a Windows 8 Pro partition at home. All I did was run the installer. I needed to log out and back in before the path changes were applied, but once I did that perl --version in PowerShell gave me the expected response.
