    Hi gp2kumar, and welcome to PerlMonks!

    ...we dont have any rights to install or to run any .exe files...

    In the spirit of portable software, which can run in such environments, consider using a portable version of Perl, such as Strawberry Perl's portable release (*-portable.zip at their site). With it, you can run Perl on a stick without having to install it on your machine.

    Hope this helps!

    "Unfortunately , installation department dont have this software"

    Tell them it's available for no cost, and give them the URL where they can download it.

    "Is there any thing back way like if we install visual studio , automatically C Compiler will be installed and we can run C Programmes.is there any kind of this technique available for perl also?"

    So they can't give it to you, you can't install it yourself because of a security policy and you want to circumvent this? This is a terrible idea which could lead to disciplinary or legal actions against you. If you want or need to use perl, persue acquring it through the processes in place where you work. Speak to your manager.

    Also, it isn't a "back way", Visual studio ships with various compilers as part of the product.

    If you have Visual Studio, then you can build (and install) perl yourself from source.
    Is that what you want to do ?

    Please perlmonks help me to install and learn perl in my secured box!

    Not Thanks.

    NOT because I don't want to help you to be fired

    NOT because to show you how to bypass your sysadmin is not fair. This poor guy/girl needs to be prevented that a total novice is messing around with a powerful language that could lead to bugs lurking for months, vanishing and appearing again some days later. Needs to be aware that a novice could be inadvertently creating a lot of holes of security in the system or net that is their responsability. Or even blowing up by mistake the machine creating the prototype for the main product of your company.

    Is not fair, nor a nice move to the company that is paying your bills.

    I encourage you to learn perl in your own PC, in your house ... or in your office but in this case always UNDER the surveillance and help of your boss and in the right machine
