Thanks for the suggestion, WSL seems a good solution and I will also try both Strawberry and ActiveState to see how comfortable my friend is with each.

    That's sort of an either/or suggestion:

    Either use WSL with a standard Perl install facilitated by Perlbrew or PLENV, or use Strawberry or ActivePerl under vanilla Windows (not using WSL). I would lean toward WSL unless you need to get closer to the Windows OS components than WSL supports.
