in thread Command prompt q.

Thanks for these comments.

Now that I look more closely at the command prompt window, I see that it shows the path "C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" (at the top border of the window frame)

Whereas i am running 64-bit Windows, and the Active Perl is the 64-bit version

So i need to somehow change the path name. How do I do that, pls?

    Try typing C:\perl64\bin\perl -v at the prompt

      Thanks. When I came back to work on this today, I found that I had a window with simply 'command prompt' at the top border and everything looking like it should.

      And sure enough, when I entered the usual command, the program did what it should.

      So my thanks to you and the others for talking me through this. Much appreciated. Jon
