in reply to Newbie Question

Since you're neither explicit nor comprehensive about your problem (...needed to run (what) commend to get the (*OS?) computer to... nor about how you installed Strawberry, it's a tad hard to provide anything resembling a definitive answer.

And, in fact, as stated, at least your first (implied) question is an MSWin question; not one about Perl

So -- beyond giving the Monks enough specific information to help -- here are some question for you -- the answers to which may tell you what you need to know to solve your own problem:
        ⊚ Doesn't Strawberry put its executable in your path?
        ⊚ Did you check?
        ⊚ Doesn't a standard Strawberry install associate .pl files with its executable?

You can probably find the information you need in Strawberry's documentation. Failing that, take a look at ActiveState's install instructions. Much will be irrelevant but some will be on target... and the same may be true of whatever information sources you know how to use from M$.

BTW, see the SIG: no downvote this time for a poorly-asked and OT question. But please see
On asking for help
How do I post a question effectively?
I know what I mean. Why don't you? and
Markup in the Monastery

Questions containing the words "doesn't work" (or their moral equivalent) will usually get a downvote from me unless accompanied by:
  1. code
  2. verbatim error and/or warning messages
  3. a coherent explanation of what "doesn't work actually means.
