I personally have not looked into Windows 8 yet.

Looking at Strawberry Perl's release page, it notes the following about the Zip edition: "admin privileges not required, however you need to run some post-install scripts manually after unzip"

You might want to try the portable zip edition, which is described as "suitable for "perl on USB stick" (you can move/rename the perl directory and it will still work)".

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
