Detecting if Perl is installed and which versionby tomazos (Deacon)
|on Mar 24, 2006 at 14:42 UTC||Need Help??|
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?
