Being my day by day on windows the only positive fact is that there is no trouble interacting with system Perl. I concord with Fletch: never run with the OS' perl install!
I use Strawberry perl portable editions, always. I have few of them in a dedicated directory:
ls | grep perl5
ls | grep on windows? Yes I use UnxUtils with pleasure since years.

| Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.
