.file association is OK.

Doubtful. Your symptoms are exactly those of a windows system with mis-configured associations.

Please post your output from running assoc .pl and ftype Perl

    This thread is reminding me why I use Cygwin/X and run Perl stuff from there. That is when I am forced to use Windows at least..

      And for counterpoint; I won't touch cygwin with a bargepole. It is the worst of all worlds as far as I'm concerned.

        As a counter-counterpoint, I am a Unix sysadmin constrained to use a MS Windows PC for my job and Cygwin is an absolute godsend. I wouldn't be a quarter as effective in my job without it as it gives me access to most of my familiar tools. In a purely Windows world Cygwin might make less sense I guess.

      What is your path set to?

      Why did you switch from d:\tmp\scripts to c:\windows\system32 to run those commands?

        "Why did you switch...?"

        I don't know :-(

        But this fixed it: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\perl.exe\shell\open\command was "C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1". It should be "C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %*

        One-hit wonder ;-)
