There would be no perl script to install but just the running Perl environment...

The executable created by tools like Win32::Packer and PAR:Packer don't install anything.

BUT, the script you package with a tool like those CAN install what you need.

First, write a script - let's call it "" - that copies your framework and customized Perl distribution to the places they need to be.

Then, run Win32::Packer or PAR:Packer (or other) to create "setup_InkPerl.exe"

When the end user runs setup_InkPerl.exe,, your framework and your Perl mini-distribution will be extracted, then will be run.

In, you need to copy your framework to wherever it needs to be for Inkscape to run extension made for your framework. And you need to copy your Perl distribution to somewhere Inkscape can find it.

There are some scripts in the portable Strawberry Perl distribution that might be helpful, including one that can add entries to the registry.

I hope this helps
