tomazos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I (like many) write Perl scripts to deploy to Windows desktop users.

From my Windows Installer, I would like to automatically detect whether Perl is installed on their machine, and if so which version.

If they don't have Perl installed, I would like my installer to automatically install it.

If they have an old version I would like my installer to automatically upgrade it.

What is the best solution?

-Andrew.
