cpanplus not functioning right in a multiple-Perl installation setup?by HelenCr (Monk)

HelenCr has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Dear esteemed PerlMonks
I have installed Strawberry Perl 5.16.3 in a Windows 7 system, (which already had DWIM Perl 5.12 installed). I have installed the new Perl in a different top directory, changing the paths in the "PATH" environment variable. Everything seems ok and according to the books.
The problem is, when I run cpanp, it says:
and when I try to install a module (which had been installed at the old Perl but is missing in the new Perl, for example: Carp), it returns immediately, reporting (wrongly) in the installation log that the module exists.
What to do?
Many TIA - Helen
Update: solved. See Re^6 below.
