in reply to Problem uninstalling Strawberry Perl

This seems like a weird problem to me; do you have any ideas?

That probably relates to removing strawberry perl registry entires .... my way, kill all perl processes (pskill perl), then rm -rf strawberryperldirectory, then reboot

After rebooting, fireup regedit and cleanout the junk, also maybe some files %userprofile%/%appdata%

    Thanks for your help. How would you do this on a Windows machine? This is completely new territory for me so please be as detailed as you care to.
      • Install http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/coreutils.htm
      • Install http://live.sysinternals.com/pskill.exe
      • Start + run + cmd.exe
      • From cmd.exe prompt, invoke pskill.exe perl
      • From cmd.exe prompt, invoke rm.exe -rf C:\strawberry... or whatever the path
      • start + shutdown + reboot
      • start + run + regedit, then in regedit ctrl+f and search for strawberry (or strawberryperl_is1), and when you find a key, delete it unless its the %PATH% variable setting
      • just to make sure, again from cmd.exe prompt, invoke rm.exe -rf C:\strawberry... or whatever the path
